Supporters of Alfie Evans have organised a vigil to “brighten up the world” on what would have been his second birthday.
Family and friends along with members of ‘Alfie’s Army’ plan to light a candle to remember the 23 month old who was at the centre of a legal battle over his life support.
The vigil will be held in Springfield Park, next to Alder Hey Children's Hospital where Alfie died.
Alfie had suffered from an undiagnosed brain condition. His parents had wanted to take him abroad to Italy for further treatment - but doctors said further treatment was futile and his life support was withdrawn last month.
Several hundred well-wishers lined the street outside Everton FC's stadium to say farewell to 23-month old Alfie Evans.
A private funeral for 23-month-old Alfie Evans will be held next week, it has been announced.
An MEP is launching a campaign for "Alfie's Law" to give parents of terminally-ill children more say in end-of-life hospital care.
