NHS contracts: Jeremy Hunt hails 'historic agreement'

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has hailed what he called a "historic agreement", after talks to try to resolve an ongoing contract dispute with junior doctors.

It was announced on Wednesday that the two sides had reached a deal after talks at conciliation service Acas.
