EDP: Protesters in King’s Lynn fight against mental health service cuts

Share

Sophie Biddle of the EDP reports:

More than 100 campaigners pounded the pavements from The Walks and through the town centre before finishing outside the Majestic Cinema to hear speeches.

The protest was triggered by the Fermoy Centre, an in-patient NHS facility for mental health, facing closure.

Beth Anthony, 18 of Dersingham, is youth officer for the north-west Norfolk constituency labour party. She said: “We are here to protest against the continuous cuts to the mental health service and we think it’s unacceptable. My younger brother suffers from poor mental health and has to travel to London to get the help he needs. That is to the detriment of my family because we have to pay for him to go down by train every single month.”
