Driving examiners and coastguard officials set to strike

Driving examiners and coastguards are to hold several strikes against plans which they say will hit jobs and pensions.

A two-hour walkout by the examiners on Friday will be followed by a week of short strikes in the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).

Several other groups of workers, including teachers and doctors, have announced plans for industrial action over the coming months.

Simon Clemison reports.
