Rubbish piles up as Brighton binmen strike

Refuse truck drivers in Brighton have walked out in a 24-hour strike, claiming they deserve more for what they describe as a dangerous job.

They are arguing against being on the same pay scale as other council drivers, who they say have less responsibility.

The city council says after they came to an agreement following a week-long strike last year there is no more money to give.

BBC South East Today's Juliette Parkin spoke to drivers Derek Shrubb, Paul Weston and Steven Graham as well as Gary Palmer, from the GMB Union and Geoff Raw, from Brighton and Hove City Council.
