Report: family urges Friarage Hospital not to reduce maternity services

A family from the Yorkshire Dales is urging a North Yorkshire hospital to retain its current level of paediatric and maternity services - especially for people living in remote villages.

Amanda Owen has given birth to two of her six children in road lay-bys, because she's not made it to hospital in time.

The future of services at the Friarage hospital in Northallerton is being looked at by the Government.
