Alfie Evans’ Army Release Thousands Of Balloons Into Sky In Memory Of ‘Little Warrior’

Thousands of balloons were released into the sky earlier today in a heartfelt tribute to Alfie Evans at a park near Liverpool’s Alder Hey hospital.

The emotional scenes saw more than 1000 people of all generations gather for the tribute, holding blue and purple balloons, chanting Alfie’s name.

Mourners could be seen consoling each other in their grief, before the hundreds of balloons were released at about 2.50pm.

After the balloons were released into the atmosphere, the crowd began singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ as the balloons soared, according to Mirror Online.

Addressing the crowd, Alfie’s aunt, Sarah Evans, said:

I just want to thank you all for coming today. Our gorgeous little warrior took his last breath at 2.30 this morning. Our hearts are broken.

We are absolutely shattered as a family. Thomas [Alfie’s dad] just wants to thank you all for the support you’ve all shown. There’s only one Alfie Evans.

Alfie died last night (April 28), five days after his life support was switched off.
