NHS staff strike in dispute over pay

Thousands of health workers, including nurses, midwives and ambulance staff, have taken part in the first strike over pay for more than 30 years.

Workers from seven trade unions took part in England, while two unions were involved in Northern Ireland.

But disruption was minimised after unions agreed staff would make sure emergency care was covered.

Hugh Pym reports.
