Newcastle Airport says it expects to operate a normal service this weekend, despite a strike by some check-in staff and baggage handlers.

They all work for the company Swissport which supplies ground handling services. It's locked in a dispute with the UNITE union over pay and conditions.

Talks aimed at averting the strike will be held tomorrow (Tuesday 20th December)
