Sandwell's junior doctors respond to 'back to work order'

Sandwell Hospital in West Bromwich has told striking junior doctors to go back to work.

It says it has had a very high number of admissions and that patients need to be discharged to make room.

The British Medical Association (BMA) has urged staff not to return to work and continue with industrial action for the time being.

The doctors are taking part in a national day of action organised by the BMA because of a dispute with the government over a new contract.
