WATCH: Doctors strike for fair pay ahead of UK election

At St. Thomas' Hospital in London, doctors protested, highlighting a 25% pay decrease over 15 years and demanding a 35% pay increase. The British Medical Association noted newly qualified doctors earn about £15 per hour. The government cited recent pay raises of 8.1% to 10.3% but said no new offers could be made during the pre-election period.
