European arrest warrant issued for Ashya King's parents

Police have issued a European arrest warrant for the parents of a five-year-old boy with a brain tumour who they took from hospital against doctors' advice.

The Assistant Chief Constable of Hampshire police, Chris Shead, said doctors had warned them that Ashya King's condition will "start to deteriorate," adding that the youngster had a "shrinking window" of time.

He added that the European arrest warrant gave them the power to arrest the family, but officers would much prefer them to come forward.

French and Spanish doctors who may be treating the boy, were also urged to notify police.
