Midrar Ali suffered brain damage during his birth

Court of Appeal judges have ruled that doctors can stop providing medical treatment for a brain damaged baby.

The three judges analysed evidence on four-month-old Midrar Ali after a High Court judge concluded last month that treatment could be withdrawn.

His parents had urged medics to continue treatment, saying he was showing “signs of life”.

Doctors at St Mary’s Hospital in Manchester said Midrar should be allowed a “kind and dignified death”.
