NHS protestors buoyed by public in Nottinghamshire
NHS workers taking part in a 280 mile (450km) march from Jarrow to London have arrived in Nottinghamshire.
They want to highlight the impact of what they claim is the "creeping privatisation" of the health service.
However, Conservative MP Mark Spencer said the NHS would always be free at the point of use.
Rehana Azam, an organiser for the People's March for the NHS, said people's stories along the way have lifted the group's spirits.
