STEP-DOWN care at Cheadle Hospital is to be closed, with beds for people recovering from operations, illnesses and accidents only available at Leek Moorlands Hospital or Bradwell Hospital in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

MP Bill Cash has slammed the move and taken up the matter with the Secretary of State while deputy Mayor for Cheadle, Cllr Julie Bull, said the town was "devastated and bewildered" by the move. Marcus Warnes of the North Staffs CCG said: "There are no plans in place to close Cheadle Hospital. But patients tell us they want to be treated at home wherever possible and certainly they tend to have better health outcomes where that takes place.

FORMER Hollyoaks beauty, local actress Rachel Shenton has certainly not let stardom go to her head as she revealed to the Times and echo her plans to make a film right here in the Moorlands.

Along with her partner, director Chris Overton, the pair are embarking on exciting and moving project in which the couple hope to recruit a local cast and crew to create the film, which will be based on the life of a deaf child, raising awareness over the issue, which is close to the actress' heart.

The production team are looking for a local deaf child to play the main character, Libby, who is around five years old.
