Schools and home care disrupted by Glasgow equal pay strike

Hundreds of schools are shut and home care services are affected in Glasgow as council workers stage one of the UK's biggest strikes over equal pay.
Primary schools and nurseries are closed and other services could be hit because of the 48-hour action.
About 8,000 workers are striking amid a "lack of progress" on equal pay claims from thousands of female workers, the GMB and Unison said.
Glasgow City Council said the walkout was unnecessary.
It added that it hoped to reach an agreement on the long-running issue in the coming months.
