Minister can't ban anti-abortion protest from hospital

Abortion protestors will be at Noble's Hospital today, after yesterday's unanimous Keys vote to give new laws their first reading.

Health Minister David Ashford says the land they'll be using near Keyll Darree isn't privately owned and so his department can't halt the planned demonstration.

He says as long as those involved don't commit a public order offence or interfere with the running of the hospital, the UK group will be allowed to put up signs as medics attend a training event.

Police say the demonstrators won't be facing the main hospital and will be away from the public.
