Hundreds of Schools in London are closed as teachers join other public sector workers for a national strike. The action has been hailed as the biggest strike over pay to hit the Government since it came to power in 2010.
Home helps, lollipop men and women, refuse collectors, librarians, dinner ladies, parks attendants, council road safety officers, caretakers and cleaners are among those striking alongside teachers, firefighters, civil servants and transport workers.
Hundreds of administrative workers at Transport for London were also on strike in a row over pay and pensions.
