Fierce demonstrations over the terminally ill toddler appear to have subsided after dad Tom Evans told his supporters to "return to your everyday lives" after days of protests in Liverpool.
Writing on Facebook support group Alfie's Army page last night, Daniel Evans confirmed his brother's statement that signalled an end to further protests.
The social media post said: "I have seen that people are believing this is the end of Alfie’s army?
"Tom has released a statement that states he will not approach media or want any protests.
"This will be until something changes with the hospital but we hope and pray it doesn't."
He continued: "They aim to get him where they have always desperately wanted him HOME.
"And with today’s positive meeting this could be a goal complete for Tom and Kate.
"I will continue to update when necessary."
The couple are desperate to return Alfie home, after their battle to have him airlifted to Italy ended in defeat.
The outcome of the meeting between parents Tom and Kate James' latest meeting and doctors at the hospital is not yet clear.
After months of battling with courts to keep their son alive, Alfie's life support was finally switched off on April 23.
The toddler has defied odds, but their parents have signalled he is running out of time.
This week Tom and his partner Kate James' lost their desperate bid to take the tot to Italy for further treatment, after the Appeal Court in London rejected his family's plea to have Alfie airlifted from the Liverpool clinic.
Last night supporters of Alfie Evans held a candle-lit vigil at the Vatican last night after his dad called for hospital demonstrations to stop — so his final days can be "dignified".
In his statement, Tom appeared to rule out further court battles and asked for the media to respect their privacy.
He said: "We are very grateful and we appreciate all the support we have received from around the world, including from our Italian and Polish supporters, who have dedicated their time and support to our incredible fight."
The 21-year-old added: "We would now ask you to return back to your everyday lives and allow myself, Kate and Alder Hey to form a relationship, build a bridge and walk across it.
"Together we recognise the strains that recent events have put upon us all and we now wish for privacy for everyone concerned.
"In Alfie's interests, we will work with his treating team on a plan that provides our boy with the dignity and comfort that he needs."
