Ashya King's health is our top priority

WHATEVER the motivation of the parents of young Ashya King to take him abroad for treatment, endless speculation in the media does little to help this desperately ill child, who cannot speak for himself.

Over the coming days, no doubt, many will give opinions on the family, their beliefs, lifestyle, the kind of cat they owned and what they had for breakfast. There will be accusations, sympathy and then accusations again.

Focus needs to be on the child. Whether there is a specialist somewhere in Europe who will come forward with the treatment he needs, or whatever the outcome may be, Ashya is the most important person here.

May he live to tell the tale.
