Germany's transport network will be at a near standstill on Monday as two of the country's largest unions strike.

Staff at airports, ports, railways, buses and subways walked out shortly after midnight for a 24-hour stoppage.

Unions are demanding higher wages to help their members cope with the rising cost of living across the country.

The two unions involved in the strike are among the largest in Germany.
