THE family of recovered Ashya King are hoping to move back to England from Spain.
Insisting they are ‘being forced to live like exiles’, they told the Olive Press this morning they are making plans to return next month.
While they are delighted with the healthcare in Spain for their son Ashya, who has been given the all-clear from cancer, they are unable to find substantial work in the country to survive.
Ashya’s brother Naveed explained that the family were hoping to go back to England for ‘work reasons’.
“It is practically impossible to find work here, particularly for me and my older brother Danny,” he said.
“He has already started to make a move back to England to get work and I need to join him.
“The Sun (newspaper) have promised to help us make the move back home, talking to David Cameron on our behalf and steamlining the move.
“Of course, we love it here, but we can’t stay here forever if we cannot work.”
The family have been living in a rented apartment between their old home in Casares and Marbella for the last few months while Ashya has been undertaking rehabilition treatment at the HC Marbella hospital.
On a recent visit to their favourite cafe in Manilva, by the Olive Press office, they told the Olive Press that they were now working out what to do with their lives.
“We are so happy with the treatment and the decision we made,” Brett said. “Look at him, look how well he is doing.
“While expensive it has been the best move for Ashya.”
Brett, whose family have lived in nearby Casares for up to a decade, added: “We are now working out what to do next and where we end up living.”
