The head of the BMA has defended the decision for junior doctors to go ahead with a two-day strike over the imposition of a new contract, saying the government "utterly refuses to listen to the concerns of junior doctors".
Dr Mark Porter said as long as the government planned to impose the disputed contract, "industrial action will have to be mounted".
He also reiterated that there will be a full emergency service in place while strike action takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday.
As junior doctors walked out for a second day, how did hospitals cope? And will the strike action make any difference?
