Flint protest in bid to save community hospital

Hundreds of people are expected to march in Flint later in a bid to save the town's community hospital.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is proposing to move services to nearby Holywell, saying it'll improve care.

"It's far quicker to come here and be seen than to travel 40 minutes to Glanllwyd hospital or only to an A&E department if you can't get on the bus to Holywell", says campaigner Jack Rees.

"If you're on a low income, it's very difficult to take that money out, that travel money, and go seven miles with your child"
