Bus Workers Vote For Olympic Strike

Thousands of bus workers in London have voted to go on strike over their pay during the Olympics.

The Unite union says they voted for industrial action by a majority of nine to one. 

Members of the union working for 21 London bus operators, including Go Ahead, Stagecoach, London United, Arriva, Metroline, First and Abellio took part in the vote, with a 38% turn-out.

Unite is now giving the bus companies a final opportunity to consider the result before the union announces possible strike dates early next week.
