The parents of five-year-old Ashya King, who were jailed after taking him abroad for brain tumour treatment, say their son is now free of cancer

Ashya King is free of cancer after he was given treatment not available for him on the NHS, his parents have claimed. The five-year-old’s family have told of his “miracle” recovery, as the centre where he was treated declared him cancer-free, The Sun reported. Ashya’s mother Naghmeh, who alongside her husband Brett sparked an international manhunt last summer by removing the little boy from hospital in Southampton without medical consent, described the news as incredible.

“If we had left Ashya with the NHS in Britain, he would not be with us today. He was too weak and would not have survived,” she told the paper. Ashya was finally allowed to undergo treatment at the Proton Therapy Centre (PTC) in Prague for brain cancer after a long legal battle fought by his parents.

The family of Ashya King have released a video of the youngster playing with others. The five-year-old, who has a brain tumour, is seen taking and placing toys, spelling his name out and acting out how to play the piano. He appears alert and lively in the video. Ashya also smiles happily when he is praised for answering quesitons correctly. Ashya was taken from Southampton General Hospital, to Prague by parents Brett and Naghmeh, of Southsea, for proton beam therapy. The video was posted by his brother Naveed King on Facebook. Mr King, whose life was turned upside down when he and his wife were arrested in Spain after fleeing a Southampton hospital with Ashya, has said they are still worried their son would be taken from them if they returned to England. The family is now back in Spain after Ashya’s treatment at the Prague clinic ended.
