Thousands of spaces in NHS hospital bed have been lost under six years of Conservative rule, according to official statistics.
Figures show there are 101,589 acute hospital beds, 7,301 fewer than in 2010.

The UK already has one of the lowest levels of hospital beds in the EU, 2.8 per thousand people compared with 8.6 in Germany and 6.2 in France.
