Devastated supporters gathered outside Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool this afternoon for the emotional tribute to 23-month-old Alfie who died in the early hours of this morning. His ‘heartbroken’ parents, Thomas Evans, 21, and Kate James, 20, said their ‘gladiator’ son had ‘gained his wings’ at 2.30am. Families who gathered in Springfield Park – close to Alder Hey where Alfie was being cared for – sang through tears as a final tribute for the ‘little soldier’. The desperately ill youngster suffered from a ultra-rare brain condition and had been in a deep coma for more than a year.
