Car workers at Rolls Royce in West Sussex have walked out on strike for the first time in living memory.
They held an angry protest outside the site in Westhampnett near Chichester in a row over changes to the pension scheme.
The company says it is disappointed by the action and is trying to protect future pension provision.
But the union says the 24 hour stoppage is just the start of their campaign.
The closure of the pension scheme is scheduled for 31st May.
