Arriva bus drivers strike in Medway

Bus passengers in Medway have had to make their own way to school, work or the shops today, as more than two hundred Arriva drivers went on strike in a row over timetable changes. The company worked out the new timetable this summer, but forgot that it was the school holidays. When pupils returned to school, the traffic increased drastically and drivers couldn't keep up. Arriva bosses have apologised. But as Andrea Thomas reports, the unions are accusing them of sheer incompetence. She spoke to Dave Weeks from Unite the union and Simon Baxter from Arriva.
