Guernsey mum petitions to bring back free oral care

A mother is trying to have a free school dental service reintroduced in Guernsey.

The service was scaled back in 2006, but Kirsty Hedley wants children given back their "basic right" to dental care.

The States said due to over-demand resources were now only allocated to those in need of financial support.

A petition started by Ms Hedley four days ago has received more than 100 signatures.
