A severely brain-damaged girl who the British health services believed should have her life support withdrawn is settling into her new home in a specialist children’s hospital in Italy.
Tafida Raqeeb, five, took off on a chartered plane from Biggin Hill airport on Tuesday afternoon.
She was accompanied by her mother and four medical professionals from the Gaslini children’s hospital in Genoa, Italy.
After landing at Genoa airport she was taken by ambulance to the intensive care ward at the hospital where doctors said she was settling in well.
It is the first time a family who have fought an NHS trust in court to keep their child alive have won and then successfully moved their child abroad.
