Police are growing concerned for a man who went missing from his home in South Yorkshire this afternoon.
Barry Wheeler from Maltby was last seen wearing a black puffer jacket, blue jeans and black shoes.
His family say his disappearance is completely out of character.
Dr John Shaw, a junior doctor from Leeds, says Jeremy Hunt's decision to impose a new contract on junior doctors is "incredibly disappointing." He believes it will increase the feeling of anger among junior doctors. He says the Government is not listening to junior doctors' concerns about safety and working hours.
Dr Johann Malawana, the BMA's junior doctor committee chairman, said: "The decision to impose a contract is a sign of total failure on the Government's part."
He added: "Junior doctors already work around the clock, seven days a week and they do so under their existing contract. If the Government want more seven-day services then, quite simply, it needs more doctors, nurses and diagnostic staff, and the extra investment needed to deliver it.
"Rather than addressing these issues, the Health Secretary is ploughing ahead with proposals that are fundamentally unfair.
"This is clearly a political fight for the Government rather than an attempt to come to a reasonable solution for all junior doctors. If it succeeds with its bullying approach of imposing a contract on junior doctors that has been roundly rejected by the profession it will no doubt seek to do the same for other NHS staff."
He continued: "Our message to the Government is clear: junior doctors cannot and will not accept a contract that is bad for the future of patient care, the profession and the NHS as a whole, and we will consider all options open to us."
Junior doctors "cannot and will not accept a contract that is bad for the future of patient care, the profession and the NHS", Dr Johann Malawana from the British Medical Association said, as he vowed the union would "consider all options open to us".
Jeremy Hunt has ordered an urgent review of junior doctors' morale and welfare, led by Dame Sue Bailey of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges.
The move was recommended by Sir David Dalton, the government's chief negotiator in talks over new contracts.
New contracts for junior doctors will be introduced despite the failure to reach an agreement with the British Medical Association, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said.
