A campaign is building to fight the planned closure of 23 children's centres in Kent. The County Council says it needs to shut them to save money after Government funding was cut.
But parents who use the centres are furious and are backing a petition against the changes - and they're being joined by some Conservative MPs.
David Johns reports, speaking to Shadow Minister for Children and Families, Sharon Hodgson MP; Sittingbourne & Sheppey MP Gordon Henderson; and Folkestone & Hythe MP, Damian Collins.
