On Sky News Breakfast with Niall Patterson:
– Tens of thousands of nurses are going on strike today for their first mass walkout in a century across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
– Nurses will continue to strike in January if the government does not negotiate with them on pay, union leader Pat Cullen has told Sky News.
– The union wants a 19% pay rise – equivalent to inflation plus 5% – while the offer on the table is closer to 5%.
