Patients in Lincolnshire are being asked for their views on potential changes to in-patient bed capacity at Louth County Hospital.

Two of three public engagement events are being held today. They relate to two options that are being considered by health bosses, that could result in the permanent loss of hospital beds on Carlton and Manby wards.

It comes a year after NHS bosses cut capacity following a fire safety review.

The two events take place at the hospital this afternoon and this evening, with another in Skegness later this month.
