Doctors from Alder Hey hospital are being asked to consider whether Alfie Evans can go home to die after his life support was removed.

An emergency High Court hearing was called today as the youngster – who suffers from a degenerative neurological condition – clings to life.

His parents want him moved to a hospital in Rome, but doctors in Liverpool say he cannot survive and the trip would be wrong and pointless.

The article goes on to state the following:

At a special hearing held at Manchester Civil Justice Centre this afternoon, Mr Justice Hayden repeated that 23-month-old should not fly, but asked doctors to consider whether he could be allowed to go home.

The case is ongoing as doctors consider the request.

Around eight police officers in riot gear are guarding the courtroom at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, with police also stationed outside the hospital.

The little boy’s parents, Tom Evans and Kate James of Liverpool, England, lost their legal battle to keep their son on life support Tuesday night, but to the surprise of everyone, the child has continued to breathe on his own even after the life support was removed.

The Daily Mail also reported:

His parents want him moved to a hospital in Rome, with an air ambulance on standby to fly him there, but doctors in Liverpool say he cannot survive and the trip would be wrong and pointless. Italy gave him citizenship yesterday in a bid to facilitate the transfer. 

At a special hearing held at Manchester Civil Justice Centre this afternoon, Mr Justice Hayden repeated that the 23-month-old should not fly, but asked doctors to consider whether he could be allowed to go home.
