The Court of Appeal has ruled that Doctors treating brain-damaged baby Midrar Ali can stop providing life-support treatment to him.
Three appeal judges upheld an earlier ruling by a High Court judge on Friday that it is in Midrar’s best interests to halt the treatment.
Little Midrar is said to have suffered brain stem death after being starved of oxygen during complications at birth.
But Midrar’s parents, who live in Manchester, had hoped to overturn this ruling and maintained their son was still growing and that doctors could not be certain that his condition wouldn’t improve.
Following the ruling on Friday, Midrar’s father said the result was “just terrible”.
