Paramedics for North West Ambulance Service will stage strike action today in a row over pay.

Members of the GMB union will stage a two hour walk out at the beginning of each day shift.

It follows a strike ballot of workers which, the union says, was supported by 84% of those who responded.

“GMB’s North West paramedics are taking this step reluctantly as a last resort – but they’ve been backed into a corner."
