Mother in NHS plea for spinal muscular atrophy drug

A mother whose six-year-old son has a rare muscle wasting disease says his future is dark if he is not given a drug on the NHS.

Ms Frost, from Tunbridge Wells, Kent, says her son's life could be changed by the drug Spinraza.

The pair joined other campaigners in a protest outside the Department of Health.
