Harwich protest march over closure of maternity units

31 March 2014 Last updated at 14:49 BST

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.
