BBC journalists strike over redundancies

The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) said it had called the strike after failing to reach an agreement with management over the redeployment of 30 staff members facing compulsory redundancy.

The corporation is cutting about 2,000 jobs over five years as part of its Delivering Quality First programme.
