Council meets to discuss new deal in bins dispute

The long-running dispute that saw rubbish piled high on the streets of Birmingham over the summer is on the brink of being settled. The City Council cabinet met earlier to ratify a new deal with workers, which would see them keep their jobs and stay on the same pay.
