Crowds of well-wishers have lined the streets in Liverpool to pay their respects to Alfie Evans.

23-month-old Alfie Evans has constant seizures.

Evans died on April 28 after doctors at Alder Hey Children's Hospital withdrew life support, following a long legal battle and a campaign by the parents that drew support from Pope Francis.

Doctors at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool told the parents that Alfie had a terminal brain disease and further treatment would be futile.

Members of the public are asked to stand outside Everton's stadium at Goodison Park as the funeral procession passes between 11:00 and 11:30 BST.

Doctors believed Alfie had a degenerative neurological condition, which has led to parallels being drawn with the case of Charlie Gard.

People put flowers onto the funeral cortege of Alfie Evans goes past Everton's Goodison Park ground in Liverpool.

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

LONDON Hundreds of mourners have gathered in Liverpool to say goodbye to Alfie Evans, the British toddler whose parents fought an unsuccessful legal battle to keep him on life support. Kate James and Tom Evans said their son's death had left them "heartbroken".

His parents, Thomas Evans and Kate James, wanted to take Alfie to a hospital in Rome, Italy, to continue his treatment in the hope he would recover.
