Very sad news that he's passed. However he's now finally at peace, lets hope the media now allow the parents time to grieve their loss.Alfie Evans, the 23-month-old toddler at the centre of a High Court legal battle, has died, nearly a week after his life support was withdrawn.
The boy from Merseyside, who had a degenerative brain condition, died at 02:30 BST, his father Tom Evans said.
On Facebook he wrote: "My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings... absolutely heartbroken."
Alfie's parents lost legal challenges against a High Court ruling allowing the hospital to withdraw ventilation.
The boy had his life support withdrawn on Monday after being in a semi-vegetative state for more than a year.
