The UK's Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists says it has not yet been formally asked to conduct a review into an abortion carried out at the National Maternity Hospital.

It’s following reports that they are to conduct a review following a complaint made by a couple who had been informed that tests showed that their much-wanted baby had a fatal-foetal abnormality - Edwards Syndrome.

The final diagnostic tests, after the abortion, concluded that there was no fatal foetal abnormality.

This obviously raises a range of issues and questions, and Ray O’Sullivan, consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology at St Luke's Hospital, Kilkenny joined Ivan to clarify the details of the diagnostic tests.
