A protest is taking place through Leeds city centre in support of the NHS.

Hundreds are following the procession led by the campaign group, Keep Our NHS public.

It is in response to cuts to funding and the impact on services as the organisation celebrates its 70th anniversary.

There are some road closures in place and bus routes are being affected as the march, which departed from the Headrow at 11.45am, looks set to continue into this afternoon.
