BBC News: Public services grind to halt as 300,000 workers strike across Scotland

BBC News - Public sector strike cripples services in Scotland: Public services across Scotland have ground to a halt, after 300,000 public sector workers went on strike over planned UK pension and job changes.

Most schools have closed for the day and thousands of NHS appointments cancelled. Travel is also being hit.

As workers picket the Holyrood building for the day, SNP ministers will use a government debate to brand the pension plans a "cash grab".
