Workers vote for industrial action

Airport operator B-A-A says it hopes to reach an agreement with the Unite union to try and avoid a strike which could shut down Heathrow and Stansted.

Union members including security staff, engineers and firefighters have voted in favour of a walkout at six airports across the UK - no date has been set but it could cause massive disruption.
