Alfie Evans protesters assemble ready for fresh demonstration outside Alder Hey Hospital

Alfie Evans protesters assemble ready for fresh demonstration outside Alder Hey Hospital

Legal advisors representing Alfie's parents said they will ask an appeals court judge to overturn at least one decision the court made at Monday's hearing.

Merseyside police said the protest was peaceful but "did cause significant traffic disruption and inconvenience for other people trying to access the hospital".

The couple has lost cases in the High Court and Court of Appeal, and seen their case rejected by both the U.K. Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights.

Mr. Evans told the BBC that he and Alfie's mother, Kate James, are being accompanied by Polish doctors and have a private ambulance and jet ready to take their son to Italy, asserting that the hospital has no legal right to stop them.

He added: "They have phoned the police over a child..."

Appeal court officials said an appeal court judge had decided that Alfie should continue to receive treatment pending Monday's Court of Appeal hearing.

Alfie Evans, who is 23-months-old, has been battling chronic seizures since 2016 as a result of an undiagnosed degenerative brain disease.

"Please note that access to the hospital is now being disrupted and protesters are asked to be respectful of other patients and visitors trying to access the location".

In February, Mr Justice Hayden ruled that doctors at Alder Hey Children's Hospital could stop treating Alfie against the wishes of his parents following hearings in the Family Division of the High Court in London and Liverpool.

According to State Police, 39-year-old Santino Sherman of Cincinnati was taken into custody by U.S. The man fled with an undisclosed amount of currency, and no weapon was seen, police said.

Roger Kiska of the Christian Legal Centre, representing Alfie's family in court, said the family should be allowed to take Alfie overseas to try foreign treatment which has been offered to him.

On Wednesday, the judge said what had happened to Alfie was "profoundly unfair", as the court endorsed an end-of-life care plan drawn up by specialists.

A video posted on Facebook showed Alfie's father filming his son in the hospital and holding a letter which he said states he has the right to leave with his child.

"I have a documentation saying that I have the right to take my son out of this hospital", Evans says in the video.

U.K. Police blocked Alfie Evans' parents from taking him out of the hospital after Alfie's father obtained an attorney's letter advising him to do so.

"Yesterday we attempted to discharge our son Alfie Evans from the care of Alder Hey, legally, by formally withdrawing their duty of care", he said, as he held up three passports.

"It remains lawful for an alternative team of medical professionals, with your parental consent, to provide such medical treatment to Alfie as they professional deem to be appropriate", the lawyer wrote.

"Alder Hey is stopping us".

They also claim that court order ends at the point that Alder Hey removes the ventilation from him and at that point they can take over and take him to Rome.
