Offshore industrial action in a dispute over rota changes has been called off.

The workers, employed by contractors Petrofac and Aker, had voted for industrial action on three Total-owned North Sea platforms.

The Unite union said most members had now signed up to new contracts.

Unite regional industrial officer John Boland said: "With members now agreeing to the new contract the dispute is ended and planned industrial action cancelled."

It involved the Elgin-Franklin, North Alwyn and Dunbar platforms.
