The family of a severely disabled five-year-old girl have marked her departure for an Italian hospital after winning an "emotional" life-support treatment battle.
Supporters of Tafida Raqeeb gathered outside the Royal London Hospital this morning for a balloon release as the youngster headed to the Gaslini children's hospital in Genoa.
Tafida's parents won a recent High Court fight with hospital bosses in London, when a judge ruled that the youngster could be moved to Italy.
Multi-coloured balloons, which read "flying to Italy" and featured a picture of Tafida, were released in unison.
Tafida's uncle, Abdul Malik, 36, from Whitechapel, said: "It's just amazing to see everyone here today - you know we've had a long fight from day one."
A £4m investment will embed youth workers in hospitals to combat violence, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has announced.
Youth workers will be based in five A&E wards, in areas with high levels of victims of violent crime:
- Newham General Hospital in Plaistow
- The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich
- Croydon University Hospital
- University Hospital Lewisham
- Whittington Hospital, covering Islington and Haringey
Placing the workers in the A&E departments allows them to intervene and engage with young people quicker, the mayor's office said.
Director of London’s Violence Reduction Unit, Lib Peck, said: “Young people tell me that the youth workers are often a significant relationship in their lives and that it’s the point that they are introduced to new opportunities and diverted away from crime."
