Solicitor: 'Charlie Gard's parents are devastated'

Doctors can withdraw life support from a sick baby with a rare genetic condition against his parents' wishes, a High Court judge has ruled.

Specialists at Great Ormond Street Hospital said eight-month-old Charlie Gard has irreversible brain damage and should be moved to palliative care.

His parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard had wanted to take their son to the US for a treatment trial.

Their solicitor, Laura Hobey-Hamsher, said the couple were "struggling to understand" the court's decision.
