Civil servants to go on strike

Members of the Public and Commercial Services Union which represents civil servants are on strike in a long running dispute. They're protesting against cuts to pensions and a pay freeze which they say has reduced their incomes by 20 per cent. A rally is planned in Plymouth at midday.
