The family of a severely disabled five-year-old girl have marked her departure for an Italian hospital after winning an "emotional" life-support treatment battle.

Supporters of Tafida Raqeeb gathered outside the Royal London Hospital this morning for a balloon release as the youngster headed to the Gaslini children's hospital in Genoa.

Tafida's parents won a recent High Court fight with hospital bosses in London, when a judge ruled that the youngster could be moved to Italy.

Multi-coloured balloons, which read "flying to Italy" and featured a picture of Tafida, were released in unison.

Tafida's uncle, Abdul Malik, 36, from Whitechapel, said: "It's just amazing to see everyone here today - you know we've had a long fight from day one."
