Protesters are gathering at Bassetlaw Hospital in Worksop this morning over proposals to close the children's ward during the night. The Trust behind the move says the closure is because of safety reasons and staff shortages.

However, many parents in the region are concerned they'll now have to drive up to 20 miles to other hospitals for out of hours care.
