The parents of a 23-month-old boy at the centre of a life-support treatment battle have lost their latest legal battle to have their child treated overseas.

Chief Inspector Chris Gibson said officers "recognise the sensitivities involved in this very hard and sad situation".

Alder Hey said noise from protesters outside the hospital on Sunday night had disturbed other young patients.

"This is extremely unhelpful for all concerned and we are investigating further to establish the full circumstances".

Diamond said he will file an appeal with the Supreme Court by Tuesday afternoon, The Liverpool Echo reported.

'We would ask protesters to respect families and staff, including the poorly children in the wards and to ensure that access to the hospital is not restricted at any time, so that services including the blood and ambulance service can run as efficiently as possible'.

Mr Hayden said the unanimous view of medical experts was that Alfie's brain had been eroded by disease and further assessment was pointless.

The hearing was conducted in the Court of Justice in Westminster before Lord Justice Davis, Lady Justice King and Lord Justice Moylan.

The court ruled against their case in London yesterday, the BBC reports, and rejected a request for it to go back to the Supreme Court.

He urged any victims of "intimidation or harassment" to report it to the police or hospital.

Broadcasting from his son's bedside tonight, Alfie's father Tom Evans revealed he and the toddler's mother Kate James had been banned from sleeping in the same unit as their son.

The decision was delivered today at the Court of Justice at about 4:20 PM London time. "We are never going to back down".

Evans has said doctors at Alder Hey children's hospital, in Liverpool, refused to let him remove Alfie from the premises.

"Me and Kate need to now focus on spending precious time with Alfie and focus on the next legal step, keeping the relationship with the staff at ease and peace and make sure no parents are being affected any more".

Police have increased security at the children's hospital in Liverpool in fear of angry protests from the parent's supporters, who have dubbed themselves "Alfie's Army".

Doctors have been ordered to keep treating Alfie as they wait for the outcome.

"As has been determined with considerable clarity in this case, Alfie's best interests are determinative and the court has decided what treatment he should or should not receive".
