A British judge ruled that a seven-year-old boy with cancer can have radiotherapy treatment despite his mother's opposition. New Zealander Sally Roberts, 37, had refused to give consent for her son Neon to receive radiotherapy to treat a brain tumour, fearing that it would cause him long-term harm and arguing that 'credible' alternative treatment was available.
