STRIKES: Norfolk and Suffolk schools close

Parents across the region will be coping with the prospect of school closures and a lack of childcare this morning.

Norfolk County Council has been informed of 224 full or partial school closures.

A significant number of Suffolk's schools have also closed with parents making alternative arrangements.

Prime minister David Cameron has called for parents to take their youngsters to work with them but those who are not keen on their offspring spending the day in the office may find that last-minute childcare is scarce.

Members of the Universities and Colleges Union (UCU), which represents lecturers and some support staff at the University of East Anglia and at City College Norwich, are also on strike.
