'More than 5,000' Welsh civil servants strike

The Public & Commercial Services union says that more than five thousand Welsh civil servants will strike today. The action is part of the union's campaign against government cuts.

Those involved tomorrow will include workers in the DVLA in Swansea, Companies House in Cardiff, the Intellectual Property Office in Newport and the Land Registry in Swansea.

Next Thursday, 6 June, will see a one-day strike throughout Wales by PCS members in the Department for Work and Pensions and HM Revenue and Customs, while National Museum Wales workers will be striking on Saturday, 8 June.
