    Ashya 'Saved By Therapy Denied By NHS'

    Five-year-old Ashya King's life has been saved by specialist proton beam therapy, not available for him on the NHS, his parents have said.

    Naghmeh and Brett King, who sparked an international manhunt last summer by removing their son from a UK hospital without medical consent for brain tumour treatment abroad, said Ashya was now cancer-free.

    Mrs King described the news as "a miracle".

    "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 Sun newspaper.

    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.

    It sounds like very clever stuff.
