Mother explains why she fought to let her baby son die


He was the baby on a life support machine whose parents fought over whether he should be allowed to die.

Doctors believed Baby RB had little chance of survival and his mother agreed. His father did not so the case went to the High Court in 2009.

For the first time, a court order has been partially lifted so the BBC can now name Baby RB as Ronnie and his mother as Kelly Bickell.

Ms Bickell tells BBC Radio 5 live her story as Victoria Derbyshire reports.
