Jenson, from Hemel, has been battling cancer since being diagnosed with leukaemia at the age of three.

The End of Treatment Bell was donated to Starfish Ward in February by grateful parents.

Jenson’s mum, Nicky, said: “The best thing about today is seeing Jenson back to being a normal child, not having to take medicine, and seeing him full of energy.

“This is a fresh start for him, as all he has ever known since he can remember is taking medicine and receiving treatment.

“I want to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Watford General and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

“Without them it would have been a different journey.”
