Terminally-ill Charlie Gard will be moved to a hospice and have his life support withdrawn soon after, a High Court judge has said.

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 (GOSH) said it was not in his best interests.

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.

Parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, and GOSH had until 12:00 BST to agree Charlie’s end-of-life care but an agreement was not made by the deadline.
