About 200 people have protested outside the Senedd, urging ministers to restore specialist baby care and paediatric services to a Pembrokeshire hospital.

Children’s overnight care and a consultant-led maternity unit were moved from Withybush Hospital, Haverfordwest, to Glangwili Hospital, Carmarthen, in 2014.

At the time, Hywel Dda health board said it would improve care but Save Withybush Action Team wants the services returned.

The Welsh Conservatives, Plaid Cymru and the Welsh Liberal Democrats criticised the move but the Welsh Labour Government said it was “satisfied” that clinical advice was followed.

UKIP Wales have been asked to comment.
