Teachers strike: protestors rally about pay changes

It's been a day of disruption for thousands of parents, but one of protest for teachers in the south west as strike action hit the region's schools.

It's meant many have been closed - forcing parents to take the day off work to look after their children.

The teachers are protesting about their pay, pensions and jobs.

But the Government has described it as 'bad for pupils and bad for parents'.
