Derry vigil for Alfie Evans to take place at lunchtime today

The father of Alfie Evans has this morning told reporters outside Alder Hey hospital that there will be a meeting with doctors later today to discuss taking his son home.

They have not ruled out further legal action.

Medics caring for him at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool have said further treatment is futile, and the toddler's life support was withdrawn Monday after a series of court rulings sided with the doctors and blocked further medical treatment.

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.

He said: "We got rejected yesterday to go to Italy unfortunately".

Alfie has been in Alder Hey with a rare undiagnosed degenerative neurological condition since December 2016.

Tom Evans traveled to Rome to meet with Pope Francis in person April 18, where he plead for asylum for his family in Italy, so that his son could be moved.

Doctors have said the toddler's brain has been destroyed by his illness and it is in his best interests to withdraw life support.

McFarlane, the judge, said Tom Evans had attempted to bring a private prosecution for conspiracy to murder against three of Alfie's doctors.

It comes as tensions outside of the hospital continue to increase, as members of 'Alfie's Army' remain on the land.

Alfie was taken off his ventilator earlier this week.

He said Alfie was "still fighting" and was "comfortable" and "content" with a stable heart rate.

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. In an interview with Italian Radio 24, Mariella Enoc, who travelled to Liverpool to personally try to intervene on behalf of the parents, said she spoke to the Italian ambassador in London who said the plane could leave with him in a matter of minutes.

A protest is planned for later today outside of Wrexham Law Courts on Bodhyfryd.

The parents have now lost two rounds of fights in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights.
