    The parents of terminally ill toddler Alfie Evans have lost the latest stage of their legal battle over his life support.

    Tom Evans and Kate James failed to persuade the Supreme Court that Alfie was being unlawfully detained at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool.

    The court also refused permission for the parents to appeal the decision.

    Judges said the hospital must be “free to do what has been determined to be in Alfie’s best interests”.
