Parents of cancer survivor Ashya King living in 'exile' fear

The parents of brain cancer survivor Ashya King say they feel "exiled" and want written assurances social services will not take action should the family return to the UK.

Brett and Naghmeh King, who sparked a manhunt after taking the five-year-old out of hospital, said they feared their son could be taken into care.

The couple yesterday told how Ashya had made a "miracle" recovery after receiving proton beam therapy which was initially not available to him on the NHS. The Proton Therapy Centre in Prague, where he received the treatment last year, said it was "thrilled" to hear news that a recent scan showed no sign of a tumour.
