Tanker drivers to decide on deal

Members of the union Unite are due to vote on whether to accept proposals aimed at stopping a strike by fuel tanker drivers. They were drawn up during six days of negotiations at the conciliation service Acas.

The talks ended last Friday but neither the employers nor the Unite union have released any details of the discussions before today's meeting.
