Butler joins campaign against children's ward closure

The 300 actor is angry after hearing chiefs at the NHS (National Health Service) Greater Glasgow and Clyde health board are threatening to axe the kids' ward at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, near Glasgow.

And he has vowed to front a protest against the decision, which will see the loss of jobs and services in the local area.

He says, ""I keep in touch with what's going on at home through my mother. This proposed closure is shocking and I'm happy to lend what support I can.

""Various members of my family have reasons to be thankful for ward 15. For the ward to close, and for the RAH to lose the skills and jobs that would go along with it, is a blow Paisley can do without. I am happy to support this campaign in its efforts in whatever way possible.""
