UK judge orders surgery for boy with cancer

Court rules seven-year-old must undergo more surgery for brain tumour despite mother’s objections.

A judge in Britain has ruled that a seven-year-old boy at the centre of a legal dispute should undergo more surgery for a brain tumour.

Neon Roberts has already received treatment for his cancer, but his mother would not give her consent for further operations.

Sally Roberts, the mother, told the court she wanted further medical advice before proceeding with the surgery.
