May dodges maternity services question four times

Theresa May has repeatedly dodged a question about maternity services on the campaign trail for the upcoming by-election in Copeland.

She was asked specifically about concerns which her own candidate, Trudy Harrison, has about maternity services closing at West Cumberland Hospital.

Harrison has said she is opposed to plans to close the unit, and May refused to answer the question four times.
