Thousands of Teachers from London marched through the capital, leaving 60 per cent of schools closed or partially closed.

Members of the National Union of Teachers and the University and College Union went on strike to protest against the Government's public sector pension reforms, which they say are unfair for teachers.

They claim they will be paying more and working longer but the walkout was met with anger from some parents who had to deal with disruption to their day.

Members from NUT and UCU massed on Malet street ahead of their march to Westminster.
