A 'health summit' has been organised in west Cumbria today in response to controversial plans to close hospital beds.

NHS bosses are axing all inpatient beds at Wigton, Maryport and Alston hospitals.

The summit in Lillyhall has been organised by Allerdale Borough Council to give people the chance to ask questions about the impact of closures.
