Charlie Gard, an 11-month-old baby at the centre of a legal row over his treatment had died.

A family spokesman has confirmed the infant's death this evening.

The baby was at the centre of a High Court battle as his parents fiercely fought for the chance to take him to the US to undergo treatment for his rare genetic condition.

His death comes after a High Court judge denied the couple their wish for extra days to make more memories with their son.
