Strikes hit England, Scotland and Wales
Hundreds of thousands of public sector workers have gone on strike across the UK over planned pension changes.
Teachers from three unions walked out, with at least 40% of state schools in England and Wales disrupted.
Workers in numerous government departments and agencies also did not turn up for work, and their union said turnout was strong throughout the UK.
However, the government disputed union claims, saying 100,000 civil servants did not participate in the strike.
James Cook reports from Glasgow, Colette Hume reports from Cardiff and Carole Walker and Ben Brown report from London.
