Parents jailed over fairytale row

A German court has jailed two parents who refused to allow their child to go on a school trip to see a theatre production of a fairytale.

The parents claimed the children's play of the Brothers Grimm's King Thrushbeardthe was "a work of the devil".

They were jailed for six days by the court in Guetersloh, western Germany, after they refused to pay a fine for keeping their child away from the school trip.

King Thrushbeard tells the story of a beautiful princess taught humility by being married off by her father to a beggar who is really a wealthy prince in disguise.
