School strike teachers rally in minister's constituency

Two teaching unions have marched through Camberley as part of their strike action over pension plans.

They delivered a letter to the Surrey Heath MP and education secretary Michael Gove, setting out their grievances.

Action is being taken by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL).

A total of 134 of Surrey's 423 schools were either closed or partially closed.

Union members assembled outside Camberley railway station on Thursday afternoon.

Civil servants are also striking over the government's proposed changes.

Members of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) gathered at Camberley Theatre in Knoll Road at 1400 BST.

Up to 750,000 teachers, civil servants and other workers are on strike over planned pension changes they say will mean working longer and paying more, with disruption also hitting airports, job centres, driving test centres and courts.
