Alfie Evans' dad: 'We're never going to back down'

Alfie Evans' dad: 'We're never going to back down'

Alder Hey said in a statement: "We would ask that noise levels outside the hospital are kept to a minimum and for example vehicle horns are not sounded".

Court of appeal judges ruled yesterday that Tom Evans, 21, and Kate James, 20, could not take their son Alfie Evans overseas to receive treatment for a rare degenerative brain disease.

The couple, from Liverpool, have lost cases in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights.

"We just wanted to take our son to give him the chance he deserves".

Chief Inspector Chris Gibson said officers "recognise the sensitivities involved in this very hard and sad situation".

Police are now entering Alder Hey hospital as a crowd of protesters gathers outside chanting "save Alfie Evans!"

"This is extremely unhelpful for all concerned and we are investigating further to establish the full circumstances".

Mr Evans begged in an earlier Facebook post: "Can I ask that after tonight I would really appreciate if everyone has a break from the protesting please?"

He urged any victims of "intimidation or harassment" to report it to the police or hospital.

The hearing was conducted in the Court of Justice in Westminster before Lord Justice Davis, Lady Justice King and Lord Justice Moylan.

Malaga vs. Real Madrid
Juve played really well, they made it 0-3, but we had chances and with the goal we went through to the semi-finals. It's going to be hard , but we'll go there to win and they're going to give it all.

The parents lost their bid to allow Alfie to be taken overseas for treatment.

Hayden said details of that plan could not be revealed because Alfie was entitled to privacy at the end of his life. Appeal court judges said doctors should continue treating Alfie pending a Supreme Court decision.

Mr Evans emerged from the hospital two hours after the decision was given by the court in London.

Wiping away tears and visibly shaking, he again pleaded for his son's life not to be terminated, asking that other doctors be allowed to "look after him".

The father of seriously ill toddler Alfie Evans has said "we are never going to back down" after he and the child's mother were told they can not take their son to a foreign hospital.

"It's about showing support for Alfie and his family, to show there are people who support and are thinking about them".

"I will update you on where we go from here and if we get permission then that would be a good reason to demonstrate peacefully".

Judges have heard that Alfie is in a "semi-vegetative state" and has a degenerative neurological condition that doctors had been unable to diagnose definitively.

In statement Alder Hey said it "refuted" criticisms from Mr Evans of the treatment Alfie has received. Courts have refused to allow the parents to determine what is in Alfie's best interest.
