Junior doctors in Bradford man the picket lines as strike gets underway

JUNIOR doctors in the Bradford district are manning picket lines during a strike today.
The walkouts at Bradford Royal Infirmary and Airedale Hospital started at 8am.
The British Medical Association (BMA) said its members would only provide emergency care.
A spokesman for the Airedale NHS Foundation Trust said "between five and 15" operations and procedures had been cancelled. A clinical audit and governance meeting was already planned for today meaning few operations were planned.
BRI could not say how many cancellations there would be. About 30 people could be seen on the picket line at BRI this morning and some of them are pictured above.
Bosses at the hospitals have drawn up contingency plans to cover the strike action, which is taking place because of a row over weekend pay.
Two further days of strike action could follow, with a 48-hour stoppage and the provision of emergency care only from 8am on Tuesday, January 26.
