ALFIE Evans supporters have stormed a kid's intensive care ward after judges ruled to have the terminally-ill tot's life support switched off.

Nurses were blocked from getting into work as dozens of 'Alfie's Army' supporters spilled into the road outside Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

Staff were later forced to call in cops after some demonstrators stormed the hospital's children's paediatric intensive care ward as a mark of protest.

Holding up handmade signs and screaming on megaphones supporters reacted to the news with chants of: "Get him out" and "Alfie is a warrior".

Family and friends visiting patients at the Liverpool hospital also faced havoc as protests spilled into the car park creating a road blockage.

Lord Justice Moylan, who helped reach the court ruling earlier today, expressed his "dismay" at protests outside the hospital.

He said: "We cannot conclude this judgement without recording our dismay or concern of what we have been told of the consequences of what has taken place at the hospital in recent days.

"We are told that some members of hospital staff could not get to the hospital because of road bloackage and that some staff and family members in the hospital could not gain entry."

Earlier today top judges ruled to have the terminally-ill tot's life support switched off.

The Court of Appeal agreed with Alder Hey specialists that the terminally ill tot "could not be saved" and that it would be "unkind" and "futile" to continue treatment.

In a heartfelt plea devastated dad Tom vowed the fight to save his son was "not over".

Taking to Facebook the 21-year-old wrote: "Transferring our stable son MAY be a risk???

"But removing his life support and letting him suffocate and die isn't???????!!!!!!

"Where's the logic in that?

"THEY SAY I NEED TO FACE REALITY!!

"I've been living through it for 15 months.

"Me and Kate accept our son is going to die but when we don't no, so it's only our responsibility to let him outlive his remainder with as much dignity love and defection as possible.

"It's not over!!!!"

Alfie's parents Tom Evans, 21, and Kate James, 20, were fighting to take their son to a hospital in Rome and said they have a private jet and ambulance on standby.

They have already lost a challenge at the Court of Appeal and failed to have the decision overturned at the Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights.

Their lawyer Paul Diamond has now said he will apply to the Supreme Court for permission to appeal the decision by 4pm tomorrow.

Alfie, born on May 9, 2016, is in a "semi-vegetative state" and has a degenerative neurological condition doctors have not definitively diagnosed.

AN ex-stripper inherited six-figures left by a punter she met months before his death.

Veronica Beckham, 34, said she became “friends” with HBO executive Micky Liu, after meeting him at the Atlantic City Scores strip club.

 Veronica Beckham, 34, has won six-figure inheritance from a rich punter she met at her strip club Veronica Beckham, 34, has won six-figure inheritance from a rich punter she met at her strip club

Less than a year later, Liu, 50, was found dead in his Manhattan apartment.

Her “everlasting friendship” with the diabetic, heart-diseased, chronic alcoholic is why, Beckham says, he named her the beneficiary of his retirement accounts and a life-insurance policy worth a combined £160,000 ($223,000).

IT director Micky’s sister, May Liu, however, claims “Beckham, as a professional exotic dancer, was adept at applying and using coercion and manipulation upon men.”

But the glamour girl beat off objections from his family.

Beckham “preyed upon Micky Liu’s vulnerability by exerting influence over him in the form of moral coercion,” May Liu charged in her legal suit.

He signed off on the transfers between October 2014 and January 2015.

In January he wrote her an email saying: "I miss you. Why is it taking you so long to get your phone replaced? Money? Need some? I’m not used to not being able to contact you.”

Despite the sister’s accusations, Beckham claimed they never had a sexual relationship, adding: “We had more of an everlasting friendship.’’

Justice Rita Mella said there was nothing she could do because only prior beneficiaries — in this case, the exec’s former girlfriend — could sue for the funds.

Beckham denied that she was a gold digger.

RESURFACED video appears to show Smallville actress Allison Mack, in a bizarre 'recruitment video' for the NXIVM sex cult.

In it Mack, who allegedly acted like a slave “master” and recruited women to the group, raves about being a compassionate person, praises Lena Dunham and brags about belonging to a “women’s empowerment group.”

 Allison Mack appears in a resurfaced recruitment video for an alleged cult Allison Mack appears in a resurfaced recruitment video for an alleged cult

Fox News published the YouTube video called Allison Mack Q & A — You Asked, I Answered, which was posted on October 6, 2013.

The 35-year-old can be seen sitting in an overgrown garden with an old wooden fence in the background.

The video comes following a Brooklyn court appearance where she was released on £3.5 million ($US5 million) bail on the condition that she submits to house arrest at her parents’ home in California.

The resurfaced video starts off with jazz music and then turns into a series of questions and answers.

“I want to be remembered for my joy,” she says in the video.

 In the video, she describes being a member as 'empowering' In the video, she describes being a member as 'empowering' Smallville actress Allison Mack, accused of sex trafficking for cult-like group, granted bail in Keith Raniere NXIVM case

“I want to be remembered for my spirit. I want to be remembered for my compassion and my passion.

“I want to be remembered for the things that are important to me. I want to be remembered for the way I impacted people. I want to be remembered as a woman who was honest and true and joyful. Committed. And loving.”

Mack then goes on to laud Jness, another arm of NXIVM that the star described as a “women’s empowerment group.”

A smiling Mack continued, “Working for Jness is the most purposeful and satisfying thing I’ve ever done. Watching the women who are in Jness completely transform and evolve in a way that’s so pure — it’s such a privilege."

In the video, Mack later hails Lena Dunham as her hero for being creative “without any fear.”

She also discusses her favourite snacks which include roasted kabocha squash, her favourite poets like E.E. Cummings and William Shakespeare and her love for lilies.

It is reported that Mack reached out to singer Kelly Clarkson, Emma Watson and stunning Sixth Sense actress Samia Shoaib to try and recruit them.

Mack and 'leader' Keith Raniere face 15 years in prison if found guilty, however Mack is said to be working on a plea deal.

Assistant US Attorney Moira Kim Penza said in court that “under the guise of female empowerment” Mack “starved women until they fit her co-defendant’s sexual ideal.”

Founded in 1998, NXIVM promoted Raniere’s teachings as a kind of mystical, executive coaching designed to help people get the most out of life.

Enrollees paid handsomely for his advice.

The organisation also drew criticism from people who likened it to a cult.

Last year, the accusations took a new twist, with women who were part of a NXIVM subgroup coming forward to say that they had been physically branded with a surgical tool against their will.

A FURIOUS Tory MP blasted ministers yesterday for continuing to send millions of foreign aid cash to China – despite the country having its own aid programme.

Pauline Latham took Education minister Sam Gyimah to task after he defended spending £46.9 million on projects in China.

Mr Gyimah told the Commons International Development committee that 70 per cent of the world’s poor live in middle-income countries – with 6 per cent of the world’s poorest in China.

And he used the example of how British aid money was being used to test the introduction of new screening tests that can predict the risk of complications during pregnancy.

But Ms Latham shot back: “Why can’t they work out how to have babies safely? Why are we having to pay for things like that?”

She added: “They have got their own aid programme. So why can they not look after their own?”
