Midwives in Northern Ireland staged a four-hour strike in a pay dispute. The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) is calling for a 1% pay increase, as was given to their colleagues in Wales, Scotland and England. RCM members had voted by 9-1 in favour of strike action - the first such vote in the college's 134-year history. RCM warned of further industrial action by its members.
