Workers at IT giant Fujitsu's Stevenage factory are to stage a fresh wave of strikes in their long long-running dispute over jobs and pension cuts.
Members of Unite will walk out for 24 hours on 13 and 24 April, and for 48 hours on 20 April.
They will join workers at other Fujitsu sites across the UK, including:
"The previous four days of strike action generated strong support from workers determined to stand up for their jobs and livelihoods.
"The way Fujitsu is treating its workforce and keeping them in the dark over its plans for the future is beyond contempt.
"This is a workforce that has worked hard to make Fujitsu in the UK highly profitable, yet their reward is job cuts and pension reductions, while the company frustrates Unite's attempts to minimise compulsory redundancies."
One of the East of England's first floating hotels has opened up in Ely, Cambridgeshire.
The Hotel Waternimf is owned Donna Spence and Stuart Fowler who have spent eleven months renovating the Dutch Barge.
"There comes a stage in life when you want more of a lifestyle kind of business and this has been my dream now for a number of years, it's been two years in the planning, eleven months in the construction and here we are."

Hungarian budget airline Wizz Air has announced it is to open its first UK base at Luton Airport.
The low-cost carrier has been flying to Luton for 12 years and is already the second largest carrier at the airport after easyJet.
The Luton base will be their first in the UK, and their 28th in total.
The company expect the move to create 36 new jobs and the base will house one new Airbus A320 aircraft.
As part of the plans, there will also be three new routes to Tel Aviv in Israel, Pristina in Kosovo and Kutaisi in Georgia.
Today’s announcement once again underlines Wizz Air’s commitment to the UK. Our first Wizz Air flight from the UK took off from London Luton in 2004 and since then, we have carried over 35 million passengers on our low-fare UK routes.
By establishing base operations at London Luton, where WIZZ is already the second largest operator and an important supporter of local jobs with our business partners, we are also creating direct local jobs with one of Europe’s fastest-growing airlines for the first time.
