BRITAIN-POLITICS-HEALTH-PROTEST

Nurses who took part in the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony wear their costumes as they join demonstrators in South-East London on January 26, 2013 to protest against the proposed closure of the Accident and Emergency (A&E) and maternity units at Lewisham hospital. A Government-appointed administrator has recommended that the units be shut down to help tackle the financial crisis at the nearby South London Healthcare NHS Trust. Those protesting argue that leaving a single A&E unit for up to 750,000 people is 'ludicrous and highly dangerous'. AFP PHOTO/Leon Neal (Photo credit should read LEON NEAL/AFP/Getty Images)
