Parents across the West face disruption tomorrow for the third time this year as thousands of teachers go on strike. The National Union of Teachers will be joined by five other unions, including the body representing fire fighters - in one of the biggest strikes for years.
As well as schools being closed the strike will also hit libraries - with the vast majority closed across the region. Job Centres will be shut in some areas but those entitled to benefits should be able to receive them, and bin collections will also disrupted in many towns and cities.
