Strike chaos for Derbyshire

Derbyshire public sector workers staged a mass walkout in the biggest strike for a generation.

The county faced huge disruption as hundreds of thousands of staff – many from schools, hospitals and councils across the area – stopped work and took to picket lines.

The 24-hour national protest – triggered by Government plans to overhaul public sector pensions – will cost Derbyshire’s economy an estimated £6.8m.

Was I affected? I don’t have children at school, I wasn’t going on holiday, I wasn’t having an operation and my bins were emptied on Tuesday, but when I took the dog for a walk on the par and I wanted a leak the goddam toilets were closed. It is a disgrace!
