Junior doctors row: Strikes in England backed by 98%

Junior doctors in England have overwhelmingly voted in favour of going on strike in their dispute with ministers over a new contract.

Some 98% voted in favour of a full strike and 99% in favour of action just short of a full strike.

The first walk-out will start on 1 December, with another two dates earmarked for later in the month.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said the doctors' decision was "very, very disappointing" news.

Hugh Pym reports.
