Neon's grandmother defends daughter's actions

A High Court judge has delayed delivering a ruling on whether a seven-year-old boy with brain cancer must undergo radiotherapy.

Neon Roberts' mother, Sally, said she feared the treatment could cause her son long-term harm.

Neon's grandmother Lilian Leese defended her daughter's views.
