Demonstrators are calling for a Glasgow community hospital earmarked for closure to be saved by the Scottish Government.

Lightburn Hospital in the east end of the city provides rehabilitative care for older patients but health board bosses want to replace it with "fit-for-purpose" facilities at Stobhill Hospital.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde took the decision after a consultation period but it has been criticised by groups, including Parkinson's UK.

Back in 2011, the Scottish Government rejected proposals to close the hospital.

Scottish Labour staged a protest on Saturday calling for it to remain open.

Evening Times:

The party's health spokesman Anas Sarwar said: "Local people are angry that Lightburn is set to close after SNP politicians assured us that the hospital was safe.

"Campaigners in Glasgow have a loud and clear message to SNP ministers in Edinburgh - hands off our hospital.

"The Scottish Parliament has voted for the Government to make a decision on Lightburn's future and Labour wants to see it stay open, as the SNP promised it would. Anything less would be completely unacceptable.

"It's time for Nicola Sturgeon to keep her promises about Lightburn."
