Family's legal fight over hospital treatment

A family believe they've won a landmark legal ruling which they say will make doctors think twice before withdrawing treatment from patients.

Entertainer David James from Merseyside is currently seriously ill in hospital.

The trust, which can't be named for legal reasons, which is treating him sought permission from a court to allow him to die if his condition worsened.

His family say fighting the case has saved his life.
