Industrial action by teachers over issues including pay, pensions and workload will be stepped up amid warnings of an escalation in the coming months.

Members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) will launch a campaign of action short of a strike, joining those in the NASUWT who are already taking action, so nine out of 10 teachers in England and Wales will be involved.
