Family 'deeply disappointed' by death plea judgement

A High Court Judge has ruled that a brain-damaged woman should not be allowed to die, in what is being seen as a landmark case.

The woman, who is 52 and can be referred to only as M, is in what is known as a "Minimally Conscious State".

Her family argued she was in pain and that artificial feeding and hydration should be withdrawn.

Yogi Amin, spokesman for the team representing M's family, said they were "deeply disappointed with the judgement".
