Schools and public services hit by one-day strike

Schools, courts, job centres and council services are being hit as around 70,000 public sector workers in Wales join a one-day strike over pay, pensions and working conditions.

Union leaders claim pay freezes leave low paid workers struggling to cope.

Welsh councils say a pay rise worth 1% to most workers and 4% to the lowest paid is the fairest they can afford.

The UK government has said public sector pay restraint protects jobs, services and the national finances.
