Father appeals ban from hospital to see dying son

The father of Isaiah Haastrup, a brain-damaged baby boy who is about to have his life support machine turned off, is challenging a ban from visiting his son in hospital. 

Isaiah’s father, Lanre Haastrup, has launched a high court battle to overturn the ban by King's College hospital. His exclusion from the hospital comes after allegations by staff treating Mr Haastrup’s son said he had been both verbally abusive and aggressive. 

Katie Pilbeam explains the complicated case.
