Court to rule on boy's cancer care

Doctors treating a seven-year-old boy with a brain tumour are urging the High Court to make a final ruling allowing what they say will be life-saving treatment.

Neon Roberts has a brain tumour and has undergone surgery, contrary to his mother's wishes.

Sally Roberts is now arguing her son should not have radiotherapy because it could cause him long-term harm.

The boy's father agrees with doctors.

Sophie Hutchinson reports.
