Campaigners admit their fight to keep children's centres open across Kent has had only limited success. The county council say cuts in Government grants mean it's not possible to keep all 97 centres running. 12 centres stretching from Westerham to Deal will shut for good.
Nineteen centres WILL stay open but with reduced opening times. The Conservatives at KCC say they had no alternative. Labour politicians have denounced the decision as shameful. Ruje Yasmin reports, talking to campaigner Hannah Arnold, Labour candidate Tristan Osborne, and Whitstable mums.
