Parents of Alfie Evans launch new appeal

The father of a 23 month old boy at the centre of a life support battle says he still wants to take him to Italy for treatment.

Tom Evans said he’d tried to take his son Alfie there yesterday by chartered jet, but had been stopped by Alder Hey Hospital, where a judge has endorsed doctors’ plans to withdraw treatment.

Mr Evans and his partner Kate James are going back to the appeal court on Monday, although they’ve already lost a series of legal battles.
