We asked you what you thought about the proposals to close either Leeds or Newcastle's children's heart services.

@itvtynetees neither heart unit should close. Simple as that. They are both vital.

@itvtynetees as someone who has grown up with the service at Newcastle, very disappointed at the proposal. It is such a vital service!

@itvtynetees It makes as much sense as closing Border to combine it with Tyne Tees! A patch that big cannot be served adequately.
