This was the scene of a packed Sheffield square today as hundreds of workers staged a joint strike as part of national action.

Barkers Pool was filled with members of several unions - including school staff, council workers and firefighters.

Council workers, teachers, fire service and crew gathered at Devonshire Green where they went on a march through the city followed by a rally at Barker's Pool, Sheffield. A view from John Lewis car park
