Junior doctor leader quits after proposed terms rejected

Junior doctors and medical students in England have voted to reject the contract that has been offered to them by the government.

British Medical Association members voted 58% to 42% against it.

BMA junior doctor leader Dr Johann Malawana, who had urged members to accept the contract, has resigned saying it would be "dishonourable and untenable" for him to continue.
