A European arrest warrant was issued, the family were found in Spain, the boy taken to hospital and the parents held in jail.
Now the UK cops say they feared for his safety, hence the arrest warrant, but a large public majority claim it was unnecessary heavy handed police action. The parents had planned well, had the special feeding device and many packs of the special food the boy needed... and now they are sitting in jail charged (perhaps) with child cruelty! So what do you think of the parents actions?
Heres the story, the article shares two vids by the boys family, so do watch if you can
