Gurkhas in Reading say they will go on hunger strike in their fight for equal rights.

They have already handed in a petition to Downing Street asking for the same pension as their British counterparts.

Four months on, the Gurkhas say they are disappointed that the Government has not addressed their issues and they will go ahead with a hunger strike if no changes are made.
