    THERE were extraordinary scenes this afternoon when close to 5,000 people marched through the streets of Islington with one intention: To 'Save Our Whittington'.

    The protest was over plans to cut the Accident and Emergency department at the hospital in Archway. After snaking from Highbury Corner to the hospital, there were speeches from politicians from all the main parties, patient campaigners and health experts. Eyewitnesses said it was the biggest march of its kind in Islington in recent memory.

    The New Journal and Islington Tribune went at the front of the march alongside campaigners from Unison and the Defend Whittington Coalition. We lead the march with an open top bus and a jazz band.
