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)
