NI Nurses on Strike. First time ever

About 15,500 nurses in Northern Ireland have begun strike action in a dispute over pay and patient safety.

The Royal College of Nursing represents about 9,000 nurses who walked out at 08:00 GMT.  It is the first time the union has taken strike action in its 103-year history.

About 6,500 other nurses, who are members of Unison, walked out earlier.

It follows weeks of industrial action by other healthcare workers over the same issues.
