Police: 'It might take time' to bring Kings back to UK

A senior officer with Hampshire Police says it "might take a bit of time" before the King family return to the UK after they travelled to Spain with five-year-old Ashya.

A group of officers will travel to the Spanish city of Malaga to speak to Brett and Naghemeh King about why they took their son from a hospital in Southampton.
