London Ambulance workers will go on strike this morning for the first time in 32 years.
It is in reaction to a dispute over pay for NHS workers after a 1 per cent pay rise was blocked.
London Ambulance service say they have done all they can to manage the strike, but without knowing fully how many of their staff will be on the picket line this morning, it is hard to say how much on an impact the strike will have on Londoners.
The strike is expected to last for four hours and the Army will be on standby during that time.
Around 130 military drivers will take the place of London Ambulance and North West Ambulance services.
The London Ambulance service admits they will face 'severe pressure' today.

As well as the Ambulances going on strike, are the midwives. In total, seven unions are striking including the Royal College of Midwives, and this is the first time in history that they have joined the picket line. Pat Gould, the Regional Head of South of England at the union explains why it is now that the midwives have joined the strike.
