Thousands in Support Stafford Hospital march

Thousands of people have marched in opposition to plans to downgrade Stafford Hospital's services.

A Monitor report published in February called for the closure of acute services including the A&E department.

The trust that runs the hospital was put into administration by the health regulator Monitor on Monday.

Support Stafford Hospital campaigners and police said up to 30,000 people had joined the mile-long march, from the town centre to the hospital.
