More than one thousand workers have staged a walkout at Sellafield in Cumbria in a protest against redundancies, a union said.

The company Mitie - which recently won a new contract at the site - is considering job cuts.

The 1,100 workers who walked out were from several different companies, which have been unavailable for comment.

Unite union said they would be back at work on Monday, and safety and security at the site had not been compromised.
