Junior doctor strikes 'a disappointing outcome' - Jeremy Hunt

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt says it is "disappointing" that the British Medical Association has called a series strikes over the junior doctor contract negotiations, after talks with the government broke down.

Mr Hunt claimed that a solution had been found to "15 out of 16" points, although the BMA disputes this.

A 24-hour walk-out on Tuesday will be followed by a 48-hour strike on 26 January and a third day of action in February.
