The Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, representing the Catholic Church in England Wales, called for sympathy and prayers for the family.

"Their farewell to their tiny and precious baby touches the hearts of all who, like Pope Francis, have followed this sad and complex story. Charlie's life will be lovingly cherished until its natural end," stated the Bishops' Conference.

"At this moment it is important to remember that all involved in these agonising decisions have sought to act with integrity and for Charlie's good as they see it."

The Bishops added that the "professionalism, love and care for severely ill children consistently shown at the Great Ormond Street Hospital is also to be recognised and applauded."
