Teachers on strike at school in Cornwall: full report

Teachers at a Cornish primary school went on strike today in a dispute over their terms and conditions. The strike, at Hay-moor Heamoor Community School near Penzance, is the only one to have been called over the issue in the South West.

Most parents said they supported the teachers. But the governors said they had "significant reservations." More strikes are planned if a deal can't be reached. From Penzance, here's our Cornwall correspondent Steve Hardy.
