The Shadow Secretary for Health, Andrew Lansley, Conservative MP for South Cambridgeshire, was in Huntingdon's Market Square, on Saturday, to receive petition forms drawn up as part of the Save Hinchingbrooke Hospital campaign.

The petition called for all the services at the hospital to be retained - they are all under review, including accident and emergency.

Mr Lansley said: "The event was part of the Conservative Party's National Action Day to stop Gordon Brown's NHS cuts. We received a lot of support and the day went well." On Friday, Euro MP Robert Sturdy and Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment, Peter Ainsworth MP went to Huntingdon's continental market to give their support to the campaign.
