Protesters supporting the parents of a 23-month-old boy at the centre of a life-support treatment battle attempted to storm Alder Hey children’s hospital in Liverpool after the European court of human rights refused to intervene in the case. Tom Evans and Kate James are fighting to take their son, Alfie, to a hospital in Rome for treatment, but doctors in the UK have argued that life support should be withdrawn for the boy, who has a rare degenerative brain disease. Police blocked the doors as a group of about a dozen protesters attempted to enter the building. The demonstrators temporarily blocked the road and chanted ‘Save Alfie Evans’.
