UnionNews reports on the start of seven days of strike action by more than 120 fuel haulage drivers in a campaign of industrial action to try to prevent cuts worth around 20% of their income.

Vast fuel depots operated by ConocoPhillips were at a standstill as Unite members mounted pickets at three sites: Immingham in North Lincolnshire, Stockton-on-Tees and Kingsbury in Staffordshire.

The strike follows a 83% vote in favour of action by the drivers, who supply fuel to Jet garages across the MIdlands, north of England and Scotland.
