Berwick : Residents protest care home closure

Scores of people have taken part in a demonstration against the threatened closure of a Berwick care home.

Staff, residents – including one in a mobility scooter – and families turned out to Saturday’s event, which was organised in protest at the proposed closure of Seton Hall.

Event organisers the Save Seton Care group estimate between 100 and 200 took part in the town-centre march, while motorists beeped their horns in support.

Signatures were also collected for a petition against the closure plan, with the total now said to stand at 1,400.

Protestors then gathered on the steps of Berwick Town Hall where speeches were made.
