Lack of specialists mean brain tumour boy must travel for radiotherapy

The mother of a six-year-old boy diagnosed with a potentially lethal brain tumour has spoken of her anger that he will receive radiotherapy away from home because of a lack of specialists to treat him. Harry St Ledger, from Portchester, Hampshire, is to travel to London’s University College Hospital where he will stay with his mother, Fiona Lear, for five days a week over six weeks.
