Neon Roberts: Mother loses cancer court battle

A High Court judge has ruled that a 7-year-old boy with a brain tumour should be given radiotherapy against his mother's wishes.

Sally Roberts did not want her son, Neon, to receive the treatment because she was worried it will cause him long term harm but his doctors say he could die without it.

The BBC's Jon Brain was in court.
