We've been telling you that 15 schools are fully closed in Hull and East Yorkshire today, while 41 are partially shut. 

The disruption is because of a strike by the National Union of Teachers regarding funding.

Chris McGovern

It doesn't actually help anybody, it doesn't help the children, it hits the parents as well and I think it gives a bad message to the public about the professionalism of the teachers.''
