Supporters for the children's heart unit at the Glenfield Hospital in Leicester will be marching down the Belgrave Road in Leicester today, to oppose the unit's closure.

More than 51,000 people have signed a petition to save the specialist unit.

The unit is one of three across the country which will stop performing the surgery.

It's as a result of a national review of services which has opted for fewer but larger centres across England.
