Hundreds of people gather in Victory Square in Hartlepool on Valentine’s Day for a rally calling for hospital services to return to the town

Hundreds of protesters assembled in the town’s Victory Square to call for services to the University Hospital of Hartlepool to be restored.

Speakers included Keith Fisher, of the Save Our Hospital Group and Hartlepool MP Iain Wright as well as parliamentary candidates for the upcoming May election.

Those attending held placards with “No cuts” and “Keep the NHS public” on.

 Michelle McIntyre, one of the organisers of the rally, said:

“We are already suffering and other people are telling us they are suffering.

“We need the NHS to listen to us.

“We are all fighting and we all have to join together as a town and as a community to get these services back in Hartlepool.”
