Junior doctors' dispute: Can fresh talks break deadlock?

A proposal aimed at breaking the deadlock in the junior doctors' dispute through fresh talks has been made by 22 medical colleges and faculties.

They want planning for the imposing of new junior doctors' contracts in England to be postponed for five days.

In return, the British Medical Association is asked to suspend for five days any new threats of strikes.

Hugh Pym reports.
