PROTESTORS took to the streets of Thurso and Wick to campaign for the future of hospitals and health services in the far north.

Over 2000 people took part in two protests organised by Caithness Health Action Team on Saturday.

The first protest march took place between Dunbar Hospital and Thurso High School where members of the public packed out the main hall to put questions forward to MP Jamie Stone and MSP's Rhoda Grant, Edward Mountain and Gail Ross about health services in the county.

The second protest march took place between Town and County Hospital and Wick Assembly Rooms which was also packed out to put questions towards the politicians.
