Thousands march to save Lewisham A&E and maternity unit

More than 2,000 people have marched in south-east London to protest against the planned closure of Lewisham A&E and maternity units.

The closure would be part of a reorganisation aimed at rescuing the South London Healthcare Trust - which has been put into administration.

The proposals have been made by the Trust Special Administrator (TSA).

A TSA spokeswoman said the proposals would ensure "health services are sustainable in the long term".

BBC London's Gareth Furby spoke to some of the protesters.
