Public sector workers are staging a 24-hour strike over pensions in what is set to be the biggest walkout for a generation.
Hospitals, airports, ports and government offices will all be disrupted by the strike.
Government figures suggest three out of four schools in England will also be affected by striking teachers.
The BBC's Richard Westcott spoke to teacher Niamh Sweeney, who said she felt there were too many pension reforms.
