National teachers' strike: Schools shut across Wales

Teachers are on strike across Wales today leaving more than 750 schools partially or fully closed.

The industrial action is being carried out by the NUT teaching union and they say over 13,000 of their members are due to take part, protesting against the UK government's changes to pay and conditions.

BBC Radio Wales asked some fathers at the school gates at Barker's Lane county primary in Wrexham for their reaction ahead of Wednesday's action.

David Evans, Wales secretary for NUT, then spoke to Kayley Thomas on Good Morning Wales about the reasons for the strike.
