  1. Row over west Cumbrian health petition

    A row's broken out after the Labour MP for Workington said she was stopped from handing in a petition to No. 10 Downing Street.

    Sue Hayman claims she had permission to hand over the signatures of 30,000 people opposed to plans to downgrade services at the West Cumberland Hospital.

    The Health Minister, Philip Dunne, said Sue Hayman might not have observed the protocol of giving five days notice.
