Sally Roberts objects to son Neon's cancer treatment

A High Court judge ruled in December that a seven-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 would cause him long term harm but his doctors said he could die without it.

BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire spoke to Sally Roberts about why she fought an unsuccessful court battle to stop her son receiving radiotherapy treatment.
