The legal team supporting Archie Battersbee's family have revealed when a High Court hearing on an application over whether he can be moved to a hospice is set to take place.

A remote and in-person hearing will take place at the High Court from 3.30pm before Mrs Justice Theis.

The hearing follows an application by Archie's parents, Hollie Dance and Paul Battersbee, both from Southend, to the High Court this morning asking to move Archie to a hospice.

Last night, following the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) refusal to consider the families' case, the trust which runs the Royal London Hospital set a deadline for the family.

Barts Health NHS Trust gave the parents a 9am deadline to apply to the High Court.

If they failed to meet this deadline, they were told life-support would be removed at 11am today.

The hospital will not begin removing life-support until the High Court has reached a decision.

As well as applying to allow the family to transfer Archie to a hospice, lawyers have applied for palliative oxygen to be given to Archie if and when life-support is removed.

Earlier today, Ms Dance said: "I pray that the High Court will do the right thing.

"If they refuse permission for us to take him to a hospice and for him to receive palliative oxygen it will simply be inhumane and nothing about Archie's 'dignity'.

"We will fight to the end for Archie's right to live."
