Massive UK Strike Disrupts Services

 A massive strike by more than 2 million public sector workers in the UK has caused schools to close and hospitals to virtually cease operation. Among those striking over cuts to public sector pensions are UK Border Agency staff, probation officers, radiographers, court staff, garbage collectors, customs officers, police civilian staff and a wide variety of other public services affecting nearly all aspects of everyday life. Rallies and protest marches are expected to happen across the country.
