A 10-year-old Palestinian boy was found hidden in a shopping trolley being pulled by a couple trying to cross from  Morocco into Spain last week.

The child, who was obscured by bags of fruit and vegetables, was found on New Year’s Eve at a crossing in the Spanish autonomous city of Melilla on the North African coast.

His mother was discovered living at a temporary shelter for migrants and is believed to have paid for her son to be transported to Europe.

The boy was handed back to her, and the couple who had hidden him were arrested at the  Beni-Enzar border crossing.
