Bishop Cavina asks for prayers for Alfie Evans

Alfie Evans' parents lose latest round of their legal fight after Supreme Court judges refuse to reconsider their case

After meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican, Alfie Evans' father says the Vatican hospital is "ready to take Alfie immediately" and provide the care and treatment Alder Hey Children's Hospital refuses to provide.

The decision is another setback for the parents of 23-month-old Alfie Evans, who have been engaged in a protracted legal fight with Alder Hey Children's Hospital over their son's care.

The parents want to take their son to be treated at a hospital in Rome and hundreds of people protested outside the hospital last week when his father asked staff to release the boy.

In a statement issued through Christian Concern, he said: "Like all Alfie's family, I am very disappointed by the new decision of the Supreme Court which justifies Alfie's imprisonment in Alder Hey Hospital, and refuses to let him go to Rome on the invitation of the Pope".

Three appeal court judges had endorsed a plan drawn up by doctors this week. "It also means that there is no hope of his ever getting better". "I spoke to the director of Vatican News, then was alerted the Pope had sent an urgent request to Bambino to take Alfie as soon as possible". This was accepted by Britain's High Court and upheld in the Court of Appeal and then in the Supreme Court - the ultimate court in Britain. Doctors at Alder Hey have said life-support treatment should stop because further treatment was futile. "He isn't diagnosed", adding that Alfie had been "left" on a feeding tube for 15 months.

Trump was also willing to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin, she added, while indicating that no such encounter was imminent. OPCW inspectors have been attacked on two previous missions to the sites of chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

The couple said Italian doctors were willing to treat the little boy and an air ambulance was available.

The Supreme Court has announced that they will not give the family permission to appeal, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Judges said no detail of the plan could be made public because Alfie was entitled to privacy as his life came to a close. However, they were unsuccessful in overturning Mr Justice Heydon's February 20 decision.

Supreme Court justices and European Court of Human Rights' judges refused to intervene. She was such a lovely woman and said they will do everything they can for Alfie as they would with any other. We are appealing today because we have got to act quickly.
