8:45am Putting it politely, its a brisk start for most of our strikers this morning with temperatures ranging from 1°C in London to a balmy 7°C in Newcastle.
The North West might see a few sparse showers but the rest of England should remain dry.
Cold, dry – now thats what I call ‘Brazier Weather’. Stay tuned for updates.
8:30am Meanwhile, earlier this week UNISON urged Rishi Sunak to come to the table to resolve the dispute:
“He says his door is open but without an invite to that mythical negotiating table, NHS staff have no choice but to go on striking.”

8:00am As ambulance workers start walking out across five regions for UNISON’s fourth NHS strike over the past three months – our rolling report also starts.
