The Government is to appeal tomorrow against a High Court ruling over a decision to cut services at a hospital.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt suffered defeat when a High Court judge declared "unlawful" his move to downgrade A&E and maternity services at Lewisham Hospital in south-east London.
The judge ruled that Mr Hunt lacked power after being told the changes would mean local people having "to travel a long, long way further to get access to vital services".
The Government is now asking the Court of Appeal to rule Mr Justice Silber went wrong in law.
