Public sector stages 24-hour strike in row over pensions

Services including job centres and courts will be hit and thousands of schools closed as public sector workers across the UK stage a 24-hour strike.

Picket lines are expected as the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) and three teaching unions protest at planned changes to their pensions.

They say the proposals will mean working longer and contributing more, for a reduced pension in retirement.

Ben Wright reports.
