Heart surgery campaigners fight on

Campaigners fighting to keep children's heart surgery in Leeds say they're pleased the Health Secretary has ordered a review into the controversial decision to end it.

Jeremy Hunt has asked an independent panel to look into the decision - which would mean parents travelling to Liverpool and Newcastle for treatment, instead of Leeds Gerneral Infirmary.
