National teachers' strike: Schools shut across Wales

Almost half of schools in Wales have been closed or partially shut for the day after teachers went on strike over pay and conditions.

Teachers in the NUT union in Wales and England were protesting against the UK government's changes to pay and pension terms.

Despite the Welsh government having power over education in Wales, pay is controlled by the UK government.

The UK government criticised the strike, and said it caused disruption for children and parents.

BBC Wales education correspondent Arwyn Jones reports from the Senedd in Cardiff Bay where a rally took place.
