Connie Yates

Connie Yates joined us this morning to tell us why she wants her 10-month-old son Charlie Gard, who suffers from a rare genetic condition, to undergo a therapy trial in the US.

Connie is currently going through a court battle for Charlie, who remains on life-support treatment to give the judges in the European Court time to analyse the case.

Watch the full interview above.
