Lecturers from two further education colleges are to strike in disputes over their terms and conditions of employment.

Staff at James Watt College in Greenock are striking on Wednesday with a further 32 days planned for next year.

Prison education lecturers at Carnegie College, Dunfermline, will be on strike on 11 January with another 31 days planned.

They have already staged a day of strike action on 8 December.
