Post office workers across the country are going on strike today. The action has been called in response to disputes over jobs and pay.

The Post Office plans to close 76 offices which will affect more than eight hundred jobs.

The union is seeking protection for jobs and the service. It also wants to secure a fair pay rise for staff who haven't had one since April 2011.

Today, the strike will affect 373 post offices across the country.
