Paediatrician Mark Ashton v relatives of David Glass. Ashton told a court in Portsmouth that Glass' two aunts and an uncle attacked him and a colleague after the family asked that doctors withdraw diamorphine being used to ease Glass' pain. Glass, who was born with hydranencephaly, had profound mental and physical disabilities and the medical team believed he was dying of a chest infection. Ashton claimed that he heard one relative tell his colleagues: 'If he dies I am going to break your neck and mash you to a pulp before you can hit the panic button.' The relatives deny violent disorder and attacking Ashton.
