Changes to shift patterns have resulted in ambulance staff voting to take strike action.

The union Unite claims the changes could mean paramedics going more than 10 hours without a meal break and staff working 12 hour shifts.

Its members will strike for 24 hours from 00.01 Saturday, February 1.

A further strike is planned for four hours between 15.00 and 19.00 on Monday, February 3.
