THE older brother of terminally ill five-year-old Ashya King has tonight defended his family going on the run.

Naveed King has told how his family bought specialist food and syringes to care for the seriously ill child on their journey from Southampton General Hospital to Spain.

In the 2min 54 second clip on YouTube he calls 'Important Information for Ashya's Case' , the 20-year-old sits on the bed while he shows items the King family bought to care for the youngster to the camera.

The items include food Ashya has in his feeding line, a power cord the family car journey and a box of syringes.

Naveed, said: "Whilst Ashya was in hospital for the first week, my father travelled really early in the morning came back late at night, sometimes past midnight and whilst he was home he did hours of research. Sometimes he did not even sleep. He did constant research for information to try to help Ashya."

Naveed reveals the video his father Brett King posted last night was filmed minutes before the police arrived at their hotel.

He said: "We decided it may be best to post something to update everyone. A few minutes after filming, police arrived at our hotel and minutes after I had uploaded the video on YouTube.

"As you can see he was happy, he wasn't in any danger and he was not neglected at all."

Naveed ends the video saying he has set up a PayPal account for donations after the family have been overwhelmed with support from thousands of well-wishers.

As reported Ashya had undergone surgery for a brain tumour at Southampton General Hospital, and was taken by his parents Brett and Naghmeh on Wednesday afternoon.

They were found yesterday evening in Spain.

So you obviously feel that taking a seriously ill 5 year old child away from hospital ...... then driving for a day or two to Spain and buying food and charger over the internet is the action of someone who is in a position of responsibility ... ( A parent ).
.
They are amatuers trying to administer a life saving techniques to a child ...
.
I think that it is YOU that should be ashamed to think that this is acceptable!!

It is a hospital not a prison! Let them seek help elsewhere, it should be their prerogative. Why is it always bl**dy harder getting out of this country than getting in??? any old Tom/Dick/Harriet can get in here and abuse our welfare state.......but you try and get out!! Perverse logic by any standards.

I have never stated that it was a prison ...

There is nothing wrong with them seeking help elsewhere or getting a second opinion, and the hospital were prepared to assist in this.

You are obviously under the same opinion that you support puting a childs life at risk .... for the reasons mentioned ..... I really despair at some people

I understand the child was not the subject of any court order. If that is the case then neither the hospital or police have any right to dictate events far less than identify as if the parents were common criminals. No arrest warrant should have been issued and the incompetent police officer who instigated what in effect was a witch hunt should be held to account. The parents and they alone have the sole right to determine what is best for their offspring. The hospital gave advice and for whatever reason this was not accepted. There the matter should have ended. Incidentally, if anyone thinks differently why do parents have to sign consent forms when their child is being treated in hospital. I rest my case!

We don't know all the facts but from what I have read and seen of this family they love this little boy , want the best treatment for him and want to be listened to. that's not too much to ask is it, if your child was seriously ill wouldn't you want to ensure that nothing gets in the way of the best treatment that they can receive. if one of my children were in a hospital and I felt they did not have his best interests at heart I would research the treatment available and move them too.

Totally missed the point. So you know the hospital tried to help them? How come you are such an expert? Mr King certainly did not give that impression! But you obviously know much more.
