Greeks strike over state TV closure

Many of Greece's public services are in disarray because of a general strike in protest at the government's surprise move to shut down state broadcaster ERT with the loss of nearly 2,700 jobs.

Hospitals are running on skeleton staff, public transport is being affected and some flights may soon be grounded.

Mark Lowen reports from the capital, Athens.
