School strikes: NUT and NASUWT vote for more action over pensions

The two biggest teachers' unions have voted for strikes which could hit schools across the UK this summer and autumn.

The National Union of Teachers has just voted for more strikes with other unions over cuts to public sector pensions.

Earlier, the NASUWT backed industrial action including strikes over what it said were threats to state education.

The government says strikes benefit no-one and damage children's education.
