Bus workers in Devon and Cornwall will take part in two days of strike action and a two-day overtime ban in a pay dispute, a union has said.

The Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union said strike action would be held on 26 October and 9 November.

Members would also not work any unscheduled overtime or on rest days on 11 and 17 November, it added.

The company has yet to comment on the planned strike.

The union said members were angry at First Group's failure to come up with a "serious pay offer".

First employs about 500 people in Devon and Cornwall. Of the 300 who took part in the RMT ballot, 85% voted for strike action.

RMT General secretary Bob Crow described the vote as a "massive mandate for action".
