Warning to drivers after threat of Severn Bridges strike

Drivers using the Severn bridges are being warned by unions that they could face severe disruption from next week as toll booth workers threaten to go on strike.

An overtime ban and work-to-rule is due to start at six o clock next Tuesday morning. Strike action is being threatened next Friday 24th August, the start of the Bank Holiday weekend.

But both sides are hoping that fresh talks tomorrow could result in a settlement in the dispute over new shift patterns. Esyllt Carr reports.
