In a statement, the centre said the five-year-old had been fitted with a special treatment mask as well as undergoing a series of tests.

Brett and Naghmeh King removed Ashya from Southampton General Hospital on August 28 against doctors' advice, following a disagreement over his treatment.

Lawyer: Arrest warrant for Kings 'should be withdrawn'

A lawyer has said she believes the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) for Ashya King's parents should be withdrawn as the Crown Prosecution Service applied the "incorrect test".

The law on obtaining EAWs is very clear - there must be sufficient evidence to prosecute for an offence - in this case cruelty.

I think the CPS applied the wrong test because Mr and Mrs King have been open about their whereabouts, they a chronically sick son and other children.

It is difficult to see how the authorities, knowing where they are can justify they are a bail risk.
