VIDEO: Why are junior doctors on strike again?

Junior doctors have begun their latest strike, which is the fourth since their current dispute with the Government escalated.

They've walked out for 48 hours over a new contract that the Health Secretary says he will impose on them.

The Government has called the strike action "irresponsible and disproportionate".

So why are doctors digging their heels in and refusing to call off the dispute?

We asked a junior doctor at Harrogate District Hospital to explain why he and his colleagues remain determined to take on the Government.


A further full strike, the first time doctors will have refused to carry out emergency care, is due to take place later this month.
