Alfie Evans, British toddler at center of legal storm, laid to rest

HUNDREDS of well-wishers lined the streets outside Everton FC's stadium yesterday to pay their respects to Alfie Evans.

Alfie died on April 28 at the age of 23 months.

Last month, doctors at Alder Hey children's hospital stopped providing life-support treatment to Alfie after his parents, Tom Evans and Kate James, lost two rounds of fights in the high court, court of appeal, supreme court and European court of human rights.

Alfie had a degenerative neurological condition that left him with nearly no brain function.

Doctors believed Alfie had a degenerative neurological condition, which has led to parallels being drawn with the case of Charlie Gard. Inside a hearse, Alfie's coffin was decorated with images of toy soldiers and the Everton logo. Sleep well wee man.

Alfie Evans, British toddler at center of legal storm, laid to rest

The funeral of Alfie Evans is taking place in Liverpool later today.

The parents of a seriously ill little boy from Liverpool are fighting a court ruling allowing medics to withdraw his life support.

A key argument presented by Evans, 21, and James, 20, "was that they should decide what is best for their son", adds the broadcaster.

Supporters of Alfie Evans have organised a vigil to "brighten up the world" on what would have been his second birthday.

Evans, a Catholic, and the boy's mother, Kate James, wanted to take Alfie out of the United Kingdom after doctors at Liverpool's Alder Hey Children's Hospital said they could do no more to help the child, and a High Court judge ruled that it was in Alfie's best interests to die. Alfie's parents had also wanted to fly their son to Italy for further treatment.
