Ashya King's parents freed from Spanish prison

Ashya King's parents have been freed from a Spanish prison, after three nights in custody.

Brett and Naghemeh King were detained after taking five-year-old Ashya, who has a brain tumour, from a Southampton hospital against medical advice.

On Tuesday UK prosecutors withdrew a European arrest warrant, stating that they were happy any risk to Ashya's life "was not as great or immediate as... originally thought".
