Alfie Evans dies: Parents of life support battle toddler 'heartbroken'



Toddler Alfie Evans has died after his parents lost their legal fight to continue his life support.
 
Tom Evans and Kate James launched a series of legal challenges to continue treatment for their 23-month-old son, who had a degenerative neurological condition.
 
 
Mr Evans posted on Facebook: "My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings at 02:30 absolutely heartbroken. I LOVE YOU MY GUY".

Kate Evans said on the social network: "Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 am. We are heart broken. Thankyou everyone for all your support."


The couple, from Liverpool, wanted to move their son from the city's Alder Hey Children's Hospital to Italy where they say doctors were willing to treat the little boy.
