Child cancer patient on the road to recovery

British cancer patient Ashya King, whose parents sparked a Europe-wide manhunt last year, has returned to Prague for an annual check-up on his cancer treatment.

The six-year-old's parents sparked controversy when they took him to a proton therapy centre in Prague to help battle his brain tumour.

Ashya had surgery in the UK last year on the tumour but his parents refused the recommended radiation treatment.

One year on, his family says he's doing well and is due to start school in a few weeks.

While in Prague, Ashya will visit the zoo where he will be guest of honour at a children's birthday party put on for a number of young patients and their families.
