Parents of sick toddler Alfie Evans lose United Kingdom court appeal

Parents of sick toddler Alfie Evans lose United Kingdom court appeal

This morning the BBC are reporting Alfie's parents "will meet with doctors later to discuss taking him home".

He did not rule out further legal action and said the family has "appeals to explore".

But his parents have refused to accept the decision and fought to prevent Alfie's life support being switched off. Evans, 21, and Alfie's mother Kate James, 20, want to take Alfie to the Vatican's Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital.

Doctors say the 23-month-old boy suffers from a degenerative neurological condition that has left him in a "semi-vegetative state" with nearly no brain function.

Lawyers representing Alder Hey bosses said Alfie's condition was irreversible and there was no evidence that it had changed.

Mr Justice Hayden said the student had led Mr Evans to wrongly believe that he could walk out of Alder Hey hospital with Alfie.

Specialists disagree and judges have concluded that continuing to provide life-support treatment to Alfie is futile and not in his best interests. They have blocked roads and on Monday tried to storm a door of the hospital before being pushed back by police.

Tensions grew as Tom Evans, Alfie's father, delayed speaking to the media because he had finally fallen asleep next to his son after being awake for three days.

Emotions have run high over the case, which has seen Alfie's parents supported by a Christian charity and a band of supporters known as "Alfie's Army" protesting regularly outside the hospital. The hospital also withheld food for almost 24 hours before allowing the toddler to again receive it, Alfie's father said. She can actually go to sleep next to him.

At an earlier stage of Alfie's case, a High Court judge had criticised a law student who had advised the couple.

Italy has a military plane on standby to transport Alfie to Rome if the courts allow it. Alfie has also been granted Italian citizenship to facilitate his arrival and transport.

The months-long legal battle between Alfie's parents, backed by a Christian pressure group, and his doctors has drawn interventions from the pope and Italian authorities, who support the parents' desire to have their son treated in Italy.
