Hundreds of schools across London could be disrupted today as teachers stage further strike action in an ongoing dispute over pay, pensions and working conditions.

Organisers say 'the overwhelming majority' of teachers from two of England's biggest teaching unions, the NUT and NASUWT, are expected to rally in central London.

The first regional walkout took place in the North West on June 27th, and further strikes took place in East of England, the East Midlands, West Midlands and Yorkshire and Humberside on October 1st.

The Government says it is 'disappointed' at the decision to hold further industrial action.
