    Leicestershire Better care together have published draft plans which could see the Mount Road Hospital in Hinckley close and a reduction in the number of hospital beds in Hinckley.

    Responding to the report Hinckley Lib Dem County Councillor Michael Mullaney said "There's a huge demand in the Hinckley area for increased, not reduced NHS services.
