Physiotherapist Pat Morfitt, spokesman for the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists, said: “Our big concern is the rise in pension age from 67 to 68 because physiotherapy is a very emotionally and physically demanding job and it would be difficult to work until that age and do the job properly.”

The Herald and Gazette has reporters covering strikes in various locations, including the police headquarters at Centenary House, Durrington, and the HMRC tax offices in Barrington Road, Goring.
