Teachers at City secondary school in Sheffield, south Yorkshire, are to ballot for strikes against a compulsory redundancy.

Some 91 percent backed strikes in an indicative ballot, on a 95 percent turnout.

Teachers believe the redundancy has been imposed unfairly and that the teacher in question could easily have been found an alternative position.

Several teachers have joined the NUT union in order to support the strike ballot.
