Cameron appeals to strikers over 'fair' pension proposals

Just two days before they go on strike David Cameron has told hundreds of thousands of public sector workers that they are wrong.

It is the first time he has intervened publicly in a row that could lead to one of the biggest walk outs of recent years.
