Archie Battersbee has died in hospital just hours after his life support was switched off on Saturday morning. The 12-year-old schoolboy had been in a coma since April when he suffered a catastrophic brain injury.His parents, Hollie Dance and Paul Battersbee, announced that Archie died at 12.15pm on Saturday, outside the hospital where he was receiving treatment.

Doctors told his parents that Archie was left brain-stem dead after the incident, and argued that continuing his life-support treatment was not in his best interests.

Judges refused to stop doctors from ending his care despite several court actions launched by Hollie Paul. In recent days during the legal battle, they made bids to the High Court, Court of Appeal and European Court of Human Rights to have him transferred to a hospice to die.
