Princess Anne's visit to Bolton Hospital has been cancelled.

She was due to tour the hospital's Princess Anne Maternity Unit, which she opened 35 years ago.

Health workers are due to protest outside the hospital after 500 redundancies were announced at Bolton NHS Trust.

It is understood the Princess's visit was cancelled for logistical reasons.
