TV Licensing workers are staging a second strike in a dispute over pay.

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) said its members, employed by Capita at sites in Darwen, Lancashire, and Bristol, have walked out

It said there had been no contact from the company or offer of fresh talks since a strike on 17 October.

Workers have been offered a below inflation pay rise of 2.6%, following a two-year pay freeze, which Capita said was "good and fair".

The CWU said Capita staff working on the BBC TV licensing contract had not had a pay rise for almost two years.
