A family of seven are getting medical treatment after being found living hidden away on a farm in the Netherlands.

Authorities discovered a father and his six adult children after one of them apparently ran away and sought help.

Dutch media reports they lived for nine years in a cellar waiting "for the end of time."

Another 58-year-old man has been arrested but police haven't said how he's involved.

The alarm was raised by a barman at a local bar, when a man came to his bar “confused” on Sunday.

Café owner Chris Westerbeek told RTV Drenthe:

“The first time I saw him I sent him away but a few days later he came back. Last week he came in and ordered a few beers but we were going to shut.

"Last Sunday he ordered five beers and drank them. Then I talked to him. He said that he had run away and needed help. Then we called in the police.”
