Senedd protest at Withybush baby care changes

Hundreds have gathered at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay to protest against plans to change specialist baby care at a west Wales hospital.

The unit at Withybush Hospital in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, would close in August if plans go ahead.

Save Withybush Action Team called the protest ahead of the outcome of a judicial review starting on 24 June.

Hywel Dda health board and the Welsh government have said the changes would provide a better level of care.

BBC Wales Today's Rhodri Lewis spoke to Chris Overton, a consultant who organised the protest.
