A Cornish schoolboy who underwent life-saving surgery to beat a brain tumour has arrived home from meeting Santa.

Four year old Jay Hensby from St Austell was granted a once in a lifetime holiday to Lapland by children's charity tumourStarlight.

Mum Julie said it had been an amazing trip: "Jay absolutely loves Christmas, and he's always loved Father Christmas. He absolutely loved it, he was desperate to see Father Christmas throughout the whole trip and they made it really special. We went on a magical trip, and saw all the elves. They do it day by day and then you finally see Father Christmas up in the hills.

"I just turned into a bit of a robot. I just had this wall up and I just wanted to be strong for my family. We just got through it. It's brought us closer together, alot closer, and especially being in Lapland together and doing all those magical things."

Jay suffered a brain tumour called Ependymoma three years ago.  It took 27 hours of surgery to remove and was the largest one the surgeon had seen.  After the operation Jay had learn how to walk and eat again.
