Junior doctors in England will take further strike action later this month and in January, their trade union said on Tuesday, after talks with the government failed to end a long-running dispute over pay.

The BMA union said junior doctors would walk out from 0700 GMT on Dec. 20 until 0700 GMT on Dec. 23, and then again from 0700 GMT on Jan. 3 until 0700 GMT on Jan. 9.
