Three men jailed for stealing the Auschwitz camp sign failed to turn up at jail yesterday after compassionate leave.

Two brothers were allowed to visit their sick mum before starting their sentences.

Their accomplice also got a weekend pass to make his wedding plans before joining them at the jail in Wroclawek, Poland.

Arrest warrants are being issued for the trio, sentenced to 18-30 months for December's theft of the Nazis' Arbeit Macht Frei sign.
