Supporters line the streets for Alfie's funeral

Supporters line the streets for Alfie's funeral

Alfie's parents Tom Evans and Kate James staged numerous legal fights in effort to prolong their son's care away from Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

Mourners have been asked to stand outside Everton's stadium at Goodison Park as the funeral procession passes between 11am and 11.30am. His coffin was white with an Everton crest and toy soldiers on the side.

Alfie had a degenerative neurological brain condition and his case drew global attention when his parents became determined to keep him on life support.

Alfie's family requested that the occasion remains private, but made arrangements for the public to pay their respects on the route of his funeral cortege.

23-month-old Alfie Evans has constant seizures.

A number of cards were also left at the foot of the statue with one reading: "Alfie".

The terminally ill toddler, who was in a semi-vegetative state from a degenerative condition that medics were not able to definitively identify, died in hospital on April 28. Kate James and Tom Evans said their son's death had left them "heartbroken".

Doctors at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool stopped providing life-support treatment to the youngster after they lost all legal challenges to a court ruling allowing the hospital to withdraw ventilation.

A vigil was held last Wednesday on what would have been the toddler's second birthday.

His parents had fought a bitter battle with the hospital treating him, and the High Court, to allow them to take him overseas for further medical treatment. His parents had wanted to take him overseas to Italy for further treatment - but doctors said further treatment was futile and his life support was withdrawn last month.
