Schools, transport and hospitals in Scotland face disruption as public sector workers stage a 24-hour strike
More than 300,000 public sector workers across Scotland are taking part in the biggest day of strike action in decades.

Schools, transport, hospitals and courts will all be affected by nationwide industrial action against pension reform.

The action is in response to UK Government plans to increase the amount of money public sector workers pay into their pension, raise the age of retirement and introduce career-average pensions.

David Watson, Unison organiser for Scotland, said "just about everyone" will be affected by the day of action in the same way as on a public holiday.
