Parents of Matthew Green found in Spain after six years fight to see him

The parents of a man found alive six years after he disappeared have said their joy turned to frustration after they were told they could not see him.

Self-employed roofer Matthew Green, 26, went missing from his Sittingbourne home in Kent in April 2010.

Pauline and Jim Green have been told he was located by Spanish street pastors, but data protection laws prevented them from any direct contact with him.

Kent Police said "confidentiality and data protection matters" prevented them from giving any further information.
