Mising terminally ill boy from Aston returned home

A terminally ill boy who went missing from his home in Birmingham has been returned home by police.

Thirteen-year-old Hassan Butt has an inherited blood disorder and left his home in Arden Road, Aston, early on Tuesday, West Midlands Police said.

His family was especially worried as he has to take medicine 18 times a day.

A worker at a takeaway shop in Balsall Heath told police a confused boy had been in his shop at midnight. Hassan was collected and escorted home.
