A 19-month-old baby with a degenerative brain disorder is fighting and letting his parents “know he wants to live,” his dad said outside court.

Little Alfie Evans has been in a coma with a mystery illness for a year and is under round the clock care at the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, in Liverpool.

The hospital say the toddler’s condition is untreatable and he will eventually die and have applied to withdraw life support to let him die peacefully.

His family will be going to trial at the family court next year to try and buy him time to secure further treatment for Alfie at an Italian hospital which has offered help.

Speaking outside the High Court this afternoon, Alfie’s father Thomas Evans said: “Months ago we were told he was coming to the end of his life, but he is still here.
