Hospital campaigners handed in a mosaic featuring dozens of palms to Downing Street yesterday.

Britain’s Got Talent’s ventriloquist, Steve Hewlett, and his puppet, Arthur, gave the mosaic in to the Prime Minister’s residence.

Hand Back Our Hospital campaigners are fighting for facilities to be handed back to the town’s hospital.

In 2005, Wycombe’s Accident and Emergency department was taken away.

A midwife-led birthing centre replaced the full maternity unit and many other services were removed.

On the back of the mosaic was a letter addressed to David Cameron, in which campaigners asked that Wycombe Hospital becomes “fully functioning” once more, with services including A and E and a maternity unit.

The letter concludes: “Our hospital was a gift as a memorial to the Great War. At its centenary, please restore our vital services.”

Steve Hewlett knocks on Number 10.

The mosaic was created using hand photographs of people, with those from within the community and further afield showing their support, including Gabby Logan, Tim Vincent, The Apprentice candidate Gabrielle Omar, Justin Akpa from The Taste and Nomakhosi from The Voice.

Another part of the campaign is to gain signatures for ‘Fair Funding for Buckinghamshire’ which can be found on the website
