Sixth form teachers' strike to go ahead after court ruling


A strike by teachers at sixth form colleges in England on Tuesday can go ahead, the High Court has ruled.

The industrial action planned by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) will continue after Mr Justice Kerr refused to grant the Secretary of State for Education an urgent declaration that it was unlawful.

In last month's ballot, 86% of members at the 92 colleges in England voted in favour of action on a 44% turnout.
