Hundreds of people take part in Alfie Evans Alder Hey Hospital protest

Hundreds of people have staged a protest outside a hospital in Merseyside where a terminally ill toddler is being cared for.

A date to switch off the life support for Alfie Evans has been set by a High Court judge following a legal battle.

Alfie’s parents’ legal fight against the decision ultimately ended in March when the European Court of Human Rights rejected their case.

Merseyside Police had asked protesters at Alder Hey to be respectful.

Officers said the “large” and “peaceful” protest in Liverpool on Thursday night “did cause significant traffic disruption and inconvenience for other people trying to access the hospital”.

Alfie’s parents Tom Evans and Kate James, who are both in their 20s and from Liverpool, have lost cases in the High Court, Court of Appeal, and had their case rejected by the Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights.
