Leicester boy with 'Lorenzo's Oil' disorder dies


One of three Leicester brothers diagnosed with a rare inherited disorder has died.

Callum Smith, 12, had adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), a disease which only affects boys and was made famous through the 1992 film Lorenzo's Oil.

Nicola and Scott Smith made the decision to switch off their son's life support machine on Thursday.

Connor Smith, one of Callum's brothers, said he loved him very much.
