- An early and chilly start for union members
- Marches took place across the country - from Scotland, to Wales to Brighton and Ipswich - reports were fed into our open map which shows the spread of action in the UK
- Disruptions at airports weren't as severe as expected - and at Heathrow David Cameron’s press secretary Gabby Bertin helped out by checking passports.
At Gatwick airport Magician Danny Hall was employed to entertain passengers who were delayed
- Bristol protesters were brought a bit of Christmas cheer by singing Santas at Cabot circus and on the march - giving their union slant to Christmas classics such as:
“I'm dreaming of a fair pension/Just like the ones I used to know/Where the coffers glistened/and Mps might have listened/Before the bankers stole our dough."
- While some marched through the centre of Birmingham a rally took place at the National Indoor Arena
- As the sun set most marches began to come to an end and unionists made their way home
- The day wasn't all peaceful though - 37 were detained due to a breach of the peace in Dalston and two were arrested in Hackney for assaulting a PCSO. There is currently some disturbance in Charing Cross.
