BRAIN tumour patient Ashya King, 5, has been ‘saved by therapy’ not available on the NHS, according to his parents. 

Brett and Naghmeh King have described their son’s recovery as a ‘miracle’ and have confirmed that he is now ‘cancer-free’.

On an outing to their local cafe, in Manilva, where they have lived in southern Spain on-and-off for years, they revealed the lad was making an ‘amazing recovery’.

Brett told the Olive Press: “Look at him, look how well he is doing.

“We are so happy with the treatment and the decision we made.

“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.

Naghmeh and Brett King, sparked an international manhunt last summer by removing their son from a UK hospital without medical consent for brain tumour treatment abroad.

After ‘successful’ proton beam therapy in Prague, Czech Republic in September 2014, Ashya has been undergoing rehabilitation treatment at the HC Marbella hospital in San Pedro.
