A MOTHER who lost a court battle to stop her son undergoing radiotherapy has launched an appeal to try and raise £250,000 to take him to America for alternative treatment.

Seven-year-old Neon Roberts is currently receiving radiotherapy for a brain tumour.

His mother Sally, who lived in Tiverton until recently, lost a high profile court battle to try and stop him having radiotherapy. She feared that the treatment would cause long-term harm to her son and argued that "credible" alternative treatment was available for him.

Specialists treating Neon accepted that there were side-effects to radiotherapy but said that without the treatment the youngster could die within a few months.

But Miss Roberts has now set up an appeal for money to help fund legal fees to challenge the decision and cover the cost of on-going treatments if she is successful in getting her son out to America.
