    Sad news - Nicky Slater

    I haven't seen this anywhere but I was reading Nicky Slater's twitter/blog and the child he and his wife are expecting has Patau syndrome and as such will have a very limited life expectancy.

    He may drive me mad as a commentator but my prayers are with him and I hope that those of you who believe will include him in yours

    So sad to hear any stories like this. Unfortunately I know how it feels to me told by a doctor to consider terminating a pregnancy, luckily our diagnosis was incorrect and we have a very bright 4 year old but I do understand how hard it is to hear words such as this. Just reading his blog makes me teary. I wish the entire family peace and best wishes and please prove them wrong little Jon.
