The family of baby Alfie Evans have been left heartbroken after gifts left at a memorial tree were allegedly stolen.
Posting images of the tree near Alder Hey Childrens Hospital, a member of the Alfies Army Facebook group condemned the extremely disrespectful act.
They later appealed for the tributes to be replenished.
In a statement, the page said: We admin are sorry to say we have been made aware of people stealing gifts left for Alfie at his memorial tree.
Army members left various gifts for our beautiful fighter and this breaks not only our hearts, but Alfies families hearts that some people have done this extremely disrespectful act.
Alfie died at the Liverpool hospital on April 28 and his funeral was held on Monday.
His parents had fought a lengthy legal battle to take him abroad for treatment for a degenerative brain condition, but were ultimately prevented from doing so by the courts.
The 23-month-olds plight and the efforts Thomas Evans and Kate James went to in their bid to prolong his treatment attracted worldwide attention, with Pope Francis among those to voice support.
In the hours after his death, members of Alfies Army began leaving teddy bears, balloons, flowers, cards and candles at a tree in Springfield Park.
The trees lower trunk was eventually surrounded by tributes, with many the colour purple and the blue of Everton Football Club.
The Alfies Army page added: It would be lovely if army members could still please take their gifts to Alfies tree and if possible make sure our beautiful Alfies tree remains the lovely memorial it originally was.
