Traffic in Brussels is grinding to a halt as public sector workers hold a one-day strike over Belgian government austerity measures.

National SNCB train, bus and underground rail services in the European Union hub are being affected by the strike, which will run until midnight.

Eurostar trains to the Belgian capital will also be halted for the day, although those between London and Paris will run as normal. Thalys fast trains to Amsterdam, Cologne and Paris will also be hit.

Brussels airport authorities say no delays are expected there, although getting to the airport could prove difficult.

Postal workers, teachers and some police and fire service workers are also set to join the strike.
