Over half of UK schools closed by pension strike


Strike disruption has hit thousands of schools across the country, as public sector workers walked out over pension reforms.

Across the UK, millions of pupils missed classes as about 18,342 schools - 67.5% - were closed.

For the first time, head teachers walked out alongside their staff.
