BAA staff vote in favour of strike action

Staff at airport operator BAA have voted three-to-one in favour of strike action that could close Heathrow and five other UK airports.

The ballot came after the Unite union rejected a 1% pay offer from BAA.

Both sides said they hoped to be able to avert the action through negotiation.

Brian Boyd from the Unite union said staff wanted a fair pay offer.
