The postal strike around the UK


Postal workers have begun two days of national strike action following the collapse of talks between Royal Mail and the Communication Workers' Union.

Mail centre staff and drivers began a 24-hour walkout at 0400 BST and delivery and collection staff will strike on Friday.

The BBC's Wyre Davies, Nick Ravenscroft and Mike Cartwright report from Cardiff, Manchester and Atherstone in Warwickshire.
