A public consultation about the future of children's and maternity services at the Friarage hospital in Northallerton ends today.

The trust that runs the hospital says services need to be scaled back for safety reasons, because the hospital is too small to deliver constant high-quality care.

But campaigners have come up with alternative plans to try and save the service.
