Scotland's biggest union of teachers will take industrial action on Thursday after a new pay offer was dismissed as "insulting".

Employer Cosla made the fresh proposal which will see rises of up to 6.85%.

It was an improvement on the previous offer of 5% but still well below the 10% the unions want.

The strike by members of the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) will lead to the closure of most schools in Scotland.
