RAC welcomes no strike news

Professor Stephen Glaister, director of the RAC Foundation, said: "Many people will have been filling up to be ready for the long journeys they are planning over the Easter break.

"This news will be a great relief to all those who thought their holidays were going to be severely disrupted.

"It should give everyone breathing space and ease the pressure at the pumps. If, after the fiasco of the past few days, ministers still want to get involved in the dispute, there is plenty of time for them to help both sides reach a negotiated solution."
