Doctors vote in favour of industrial action

The majority of doctors who responded to a ballot have voted in favour of taking industrial action over changes to their pensions.

The British Medical Association balloted over 100,000 medics across the UK on the government's plans which it claims are unfair.

Just over 50,000 responded, with 79% of GPs, 84% of hospital consultants and 92% of junior doctors voting in favour.

The BBC's Jane Hughes reports.
