Health reforms: Protesters in north Wales join forces to fight changes

Campaigners against major changes to the health service in north Wales are considering a legal challenge.

Protesters from a range of groups have joined forces to form the North Wales Health Alliance.

It follows Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board's decision to shut four community hospitals and transfer care for seriously ill babies to England.

The board says changes are needed to meet cost cutting targets and provide effective health care in the future. BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke reports.
