PUBLIC sector workers from Burnley – including teachers, civil servants and health professionals – will join thousands from across the country in walking out of work today.

The public sector strike, one of the biggest for many years, is being held in protest at proposed government changes to pensions.

Picket lines will be manned outside Burnley Town Hall, Burnley Magistrates’ Court and Burnley College.
