Brighton students walk out of school

A number of Brighton students have walked out of school today in protest against proposed changes to the education system. The action comes after hundreds of schools across Kent, Sussex and Brighton were shut or partially shut yesterday in a strike by teachers over pay, conditions and pensions.

The pupils who walked out say they were taking action over possible changes to the length of the school day and summer holidays.
