The deadline for reaching an agreement over the end-of-life care for terminally-ill Charlie Gard passed on Thursday – Charlie’s parents wanted a private medical team to care for their son in a hospice so they could have more time with him.

But Great Ormond Street Hospital said it was not in his best interests, adding that the care he’s given must protect his dignity.

Mr Justice Francis approved a plan which will see Charlie “inevitably” die shortly after being moved.

The judge added that no details about when he would be moved and where could be made public.
