A final appeal over whether or not to switch off Archie Battersbee’s life support is being considered by the Supreme Court.

The 12-year-old was found dead at his home in Southend, Essex, on April 7 with a ligature over his head.

It is thought he had been participating in an online challenge that led him to lose consciousness, his mother Hollie Dance said.

Archie’s family had submitted a last minute appeal to the Supreme Court in a bid to keep him alive.

A spokesperson has confirmed that a panel of three justices will now consider the application for permission to appeal.

When asked on how long until a decision could be made, they added that they were aware of the ‘urgency of the matter’.

The Royal London Hospital confirmed it would not begin withdrawing any treatment until a final court decision was made.

Following the appeal news, Ms Dance said she feels her so is ‘still with us’.

‘We pray for an encouraging response from the Supreme Court’ said his mother (Picture: PA)

She said: ‘We are having to battle over every decision with the hospital.

‘There is nothing dignified in how we are being treated as a family in this situation.

‘We do not understand what the rush is and why all of our wishes are being denied.

‘I know Archie’s still with us. Archie’s showing very different signs to what the clinicians are actually putting over to the courts.

‘He’s very much there, he’s progressing in so many ways.

‘We pray for an encouraging response from the Supreme Court.’

Speaking to Good Morning Britain this morning, she had again vowed to consider fighting to keep her son alive.

Ms Dance said: ‘Me and Archie’s dad made a promise to Archie we would fight this until the end and that’s exactly what we intend to do.

‘I’m pretty sure this is our last chance now.’

Since April, Archie’s family have been embroiled in legal cases and appeals to keep the 12-year-old alive.

Judges previously ruled that Archie’s life-support should end and said further attempts at treatment would be ‘futile.’
