NHS staff in England and NI stage four-hour strike
NHS workers, including nurses, midwives and ambulance staff, have staged a four-hour strike in England as part of a pay dispute.
They were protesting about the decision not to implement a 1% rise for all staff recommended by a pay review body.
Members of nine unions walked out at 07:00 GMT in England and at 08:00 GMT in Northern Ireland.
A Department of Health spokesman said it could not afford the rise without risking frontline jobs.
Dominic Hughes reports.
