Video: A and E closure march a success and there’s more to come

Have your say

Around 500 people marched through the streets of Halifax to show their anger at the potential closure of Calderdale Royal Hospital’s A and E department.

Organisers said the non-political event was a “huge success” and “just the start” of a series of protests against the proposed restructuring of health care provision in Calderdale and Huddersfield.

Savile Park man Gary Scott, who organised the march from Hunger Hill to Northgate House and dressed as a clown because “only a clown would propose closing Calderdale A and E”, said he was left very emotional at the turnout.
