Archie Battersbee’s parents have condemned the decision by the Court of Appeal to allow their son’s life support to be terminated on Tuesday, 2 August.

On Monday, 1 August, the court rejected a last-minute bid by the 12-year-old’s family to postpone the withdrawal of treatment.

“I’ve got my son’s best interests at heart... Archie’s best interests would be to allow that child time to recover. We made a promise to Archie, we’ll fight to the end... to let him down now it’s not an option,” Archie’s mother Hollie Dance said.
