The Diamond Jubilee is set to be the biggest national celebration since the Royal Wedding in April 2011. So it comes as little surprise that live footage will be on the television and radio over the weekend.

Most television channels including BBC, ITV and Sky have chosen to return to the correspondents who covered the Royal Wedding. Huw Edwards and Sophie Raworth are at the helm of the BBC’s Diamond Jubilee coverage. Phillip Schofield and Julie Etchingham will be taking the reins at ITV and Dermot Murnagham, Eamonn Holmes and Sarah Hewson will be reporting for Sky News.

You’ll be able to watch live footage throughout most of the weekend on all channels so stay tuned!

Today the country is experiencing one of the biggest public sector strikes in recent history. Over 2 million public sector workers have taking the decision to strike over planned changes to their pensions.

As schools, airports, hospitals, council buildings and even libraries are at a standstill in many areas disruption comes as little surprise.  

As disgruntled workers take to picket lines up and down the country it is interesting to read the differing public opinions. Sky news today issued a survey of those for and against the strike which displays the majority are in favour.

It’s an interesting topic to follow and I’m keen to track any developments. However, I’m sure many of you will agree that pension reforms, strike action and new political initiative are often difficult to fully understand. Thankfully the BBC has created an easy Q&A to today’s strikes, which is certainly worth reading.

I hope that the affected institutes haven’t caused you too much disruption. Follow live updates at the Guardian online.
