Thousands of school and university students have gone 'on strike' from school as part of a global movement calling for action on climate change.

The Youth Strike 4 Climate protests, inspired by Swedish teen Greta Thunberg's solo demonstrations, have been taking place in more than 60 towns and cities across the UK.

Organisers say they want the government to declare a climate emergency and take decisive steps to tackle the issue, including drastic reforms to environmental policy and education.
