Fuel strike averted: 'Problems remain in tanker trade'

A strike by fuel tanker drivers has been averted after they narrowly voted to accept a deal brokered during talks at the conciliation service Acas.

It means the long-running dispute over terms and conditions, that resulted in panic fuel buying in March, is over.

But Unite said the vote left no room to "be complacent" and that "problems remain" within the industry.

Speaking to the BBC, Unite's Diana Holland said that all of the parties involved in the dispute had an important part to play going forward.
