NE Scotland, Orkney & Shetland

Strike will close most Orkney schools

Almost all Orkney schools are expected to close if UK-wide industrial action goes ahead next week, it has been announced.

The council said St Andrews Primary School would open as normal, and details for Papa Westray Primary School were still to be announced.

More than two million workers across the UK are due to strike on Wednesday.

All Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire schools will close, and most in Moray and Shetland.
