BRAIN tumour patient Ashya King has finally returned to his home in England. 

Nearly a year after leaving the UK in search of better treatment for their son, Brett and Naghmeh King have returned to their Portsmouth home with Ashya.

The family had been living in San Pedro as they feared they would be arrested on their return to the UK.

Ashya, 6, overcame a brain tumour after his parents discharged him from Southampton General hospital in August 2014 and fled to the Costa del Sol in search of better treatment.

Arrested on a European arrest warrant Brett and Naghmeh were eventually freed after common sense prevailed.

Ashya eventually underwent proton beam therapy in a Prague clinic which saw him make a ‘full recovery’ from cancer.

  1. Hmmm. Back to benefit land. The place they couldn’t stop badmouthing. They must have spent the cerca 200,000 they raised. If the tumour comes back (seeing as they refused chemotherapy) I suppose the NHS will get blamed.
