Mother wins battle to stop her 11-year-old terminally - ill daughter being taken into foster care after local council apologises for 'nearly destroying the family '. A mother-of- five has won an agonising battle to prevent her terminally - ill daughter from being taken away from her and put into care.

Cancer sufferer: Terminally ill boy, Ashya, five , was found alive by police in Spain but is under police guard in hospital and his family are banned from seeing him.

He has been asked by bosses at Barts Heatlth NHS Trust to rule that stopping life-support treatment is in the youngster's best interests.

Tafida's parents, Shelina Begum, 39, and father Mohammed Raqeeb, 45, who live in Newham, east London, want to move her to Gaslini children's hospital in Genoa, Italy, and have organised funding.

But Katie Gollop QC, who is leading the trust's legal team has now stated that judges in England and Wales have a legal duty to put a child's best interests, not parents' wishes, first.

Miss Gollop said Tafida might be able to 'hear a little', but she could not breathe for herself and could not 'experience touch' in large parts of her body.

She told Mr Justice MacDonald that Tafida's parents wanted the right to go to a country where they were the 'sole decision makers'.

Miss Gollop said changing the law was a matter for Parliament, not judges.

She said the judge should dismiss the couple's claim and put Tafida's 'medical best interests' first

Mr Justice MacDonald has been told how Tafida woke her parents in the early hours in February complaining of a headache.

She collapsed shortly afterwards and doctors discovered that blood vessels in her brain had ruptured.

Tate Modern: Family Of Boy Who Fell From Building Say He's Making 'Amazing Progress'

Tate Modern: Family Of Boy Who Fell From Building Say He's Making 'Amazing Progress' The family of a six-year-old French boy who fell five storeys from the Tate Modern said he has made “amazing progress” as they thanked well-wishers who have donated more than £54,000 (60,000 euro) to help him.

( London ) 18. She did not know. The "No" was stronger than her craving to be in Frisco's arms and forget this dreary existence. (Mansfield) 5 . Alice went on, he ought to stop doing nothing and criticising everybody. (Lindsay) 6. Everything is being taken down and used against you.

Tafida could not now swallow, taste or see, the judge was told.

The QC said all doctors - including in Italy - asked for an opinion that Tafida would never come off a ventilator and would always need artificial assistance.

Miss Gollop said doctors thought the youngster was 'beyond experience' and added that the Italian hospital was offering to continue life-support treatment as a 'comfort' to the family.

Gaslini specialists would continue to provide life-support treatment for parents who could pay and wanted such treatment to continue, she said.

Miss Gollop protested on Monday when a lawyer representing Tafida's parents said that in July doctors had planned to stop treatment without approval.

On Tuesday, she put the trust's side of the story and said the allegation was not true.

She said Tafida's parents had agreed to life-support treatment ending, then changed their minds.

She is pictured before the tragic injury

Ms Gollop said in light of that disagreement the trust had asked a judge to make a decision about what moves would be in Tafida's best interests.

She said doctors and trust bosses had acted properly throughout.

Just yesterday barrister Vikram Sachdeva QC said Tafida, who has a British-Bangladeshi background, came from a Muslim family and her parents took the view that only God could take life, not mankind.

Mr Sachdeva outlined her case to Mr Justice MacDonald on Monday at the start of a High Court trial in London.

'As a matter of EU law,' Mr Sachdeva told the judge, 'Tafida and her parents have, in principle, a right to elect to receive medical care in another EU state.'

He added: 'By refusing her transfer, the trust is acting in breach of that right.'
