The maternity unit at Horton General Hospital in Banbury is set to be downgraded following a vote today by Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

Campaigners have been fighting proposed changes with a number of protests held.

In October, the facility became midwife-led due to problems recruiting doctors.

The decision will see the vast majority of expectant mothers travelling 20 miles down the road to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
