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.

Brett King: If I see Ashya, they will arrest me

The parents of Ashya King have arrived at a Spanish hospital for a reunion with their sick son.

But the five-year-old brain tumour patient's father Brett claimed he would be stopped from seeing him for the first time since he and wife Naghmeh were arrested on Saturday.

Arriving at Materno-Infantil hospital in Malaga, Mr King said:

We have come to see him but they won't let me see him.

Portsmouth Council have made him a ward of court, so we don't have custody over him.

If I see him, then they will arrest me.
