Harwich protest march over closure of maternity units

Protestors took to the streets to oppose the shutting of the maternity units in Harwich and at Clacton.

Health managers say the closures are down to a shortage of midwives and are temporary, but opponents fear they could become permanent.

The two units will be closed until at least June.
