Protest over County Durham care home closure plans

Campaigners trying to stop the closure of five care homes in County Durham have held a protest outside the council offices.

The council is considering shutting the homes as part of a bid to save £222m, and is consulting over their future.

However, relatives fear the uncertainty is already affecting the health of residents.
