Teachers in protest over violence

Teachers have gone on strike protesting over violence, threats and "poor management" at a Lancashire school.

NASUWT Rep John Girdley says "the behaviour in this school isn't much different to anywhere else, it's the senior managements ability to deal with it that is the problem."

Harry Devonport from Blackburn with Darwen Council said they are still at very early stages in the discussions with the Unions.

The teachers formed a picket line outside the 1,100-pupil school during the one-day walkout.

Our reporter Laura Bicker is outside the school.
