A campaign group is hanging children's dummies in public places around Whitehaven to protest about possible cuts to maternity services in west Cumbria.

Several options are currently being considered for the future of the West Cumberland Hospital including transferring some maternity services to Carlisle.

The hospital previously removed the dummies and said they will continue to do so.
