Strikes will shut schools

SCHOOLS across the district will be closed tomorrow (Thursday) as teachers join a day of nationwide industrial action over pensions and pay.

The 24-hour strike action means that some schools will be shut completely while others will only be open to certain years.

Thousands of public sector workers, including teachers, court workers and police support staff, are joining in the mass walkout.

A protest rally is planned in Lancaster city centre tomorrow at 11am as part of the strike action.
