Cheltenham NHS cuts protesters occupy Natwest bank

A group of anti-cuts protesters occupied a bank in Cheltenham on Saturday.

About 30 people from UK Uncut demonstrated at the Natwest branch for a short time as part of nationwide protests against proposed NHS reforms.

The group says the government should concentrate on reforming banks rather than cutting the health service.

A NatWest spokesman said: "We are aware of the protests and our priority is to minimise disruption to customers."

Banks in cities including London, Brighton, and Bristol were among those occupied in the protest.
