Lecturers outside Motherwell campus

Members of the Educational Institute of Scotland protested outside the Motherwell campus of New College Lanarkshire.

The union says further strikes will be held this month unless agreement can be reached on pay and conditions.

Education Secretary John Swinney urged the lecturers to call of their action while talks overseen by a government-appointed mediator are held.
