A judicial review hearing into the decision to downgrade A&E services at Chase Farm Hospital in Enfield is to begin at the High Court today.

The review has been brought on the grounds that the decision to close services had been made on the basis that primary care services in the area would be improved.

Enfield council claims that such improvements haven't taken place, and that without them A&E closures at Chase Farm are unsafe.

Services are currently due to close on 9 December.
