Two superheroes came face-to-face for an historic meeting in London.

Courageous Liam Phillips (4), who is fighting the recurring cancer neuroblastoma, had his dream come true when he met Spider-Man – all thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK.

Liam changed into his own Spider-Man outfit and was taken to a themed room by Spider-Man himself, where they made spider webs and opened presents.

Next came Liam’s favourite part of the day – searching for the Green Goblin and making the hotel safe from baddies.

The little lad from Cowbit was also presented with a certificate to confirm he is an official superhero.

His mum Claire (34) said: “Liam said to me after the wish ‘it was the best day ever’. He has not stopped talking about it.

“The wish has made him happier and helped him cope with what he has been through – it has given him a sense of normality and made him feel special.”

Liam has Spider-Man shoes, a small Spider-Man motorbike and lots of Spider-Man themed toys.

Clair said: “When we walked around B&Q the other day he was trying to shoot spider webs.”

Clair and husband Stuart (31) joined Liam on the trip to London and say it was a special day that only the charity could have provided.

Liam was diagnosed with neuroblastoma soon after birth, when he was treated with chemotherapy, and had surgery for two tumours in 2012.

A third tumour was discovered last year and doctors are monitoring that.
