Civil servants strike on budget day

Thousands of civil servants across Britain are staging a 24-hour strike in an escalation of a dispute over pay, pensions and working conditions.

The Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) said up to 250,000 of its members would join the walkout, timed to coincide with the budget.

Disruption is expected at government departments, driving test centres, museums, galleries, jobcentres, tax offices, courts and border patrols at ports and airports.
