Campaigners are urging people to back a petition calling on health chiefs to protect and preserve the Cottage Hospital war memorial and portico.

The memorial features four marble tablets inscribed with the names of 953 men who fought in the First World War and they are housed in a Grade II-listed portico.

Liberal Democrat district councillors Barbara Johnson, Sarah Hill and Phil Knowles, have launched a petition calling on the NHS to protect the site, to safely move it to an agreed new home and to secure the funding for its upkeep.
