Was the public sector pensions strike a success?

Thousands of residents across Hartlepool were affected as the town was hit by strike chaos.

More than half of the town’s schools were closed and the majority of court cases did not go ahead because of the walk-outs.

Jobseekers were also affected as a large number of staff did not turn up for work at Hartlepool’s Jobcentre Plus office.
