Bus driver strike to go ahead

A bus strike in Edinburgh, southeastern Scotland, is set to go ahead on Friday 2nd August after drivers voted to reject a last-minute deal in a long-running dispute.

Lothian Buses say services will either not run or will operate on a significantly reduced basis.

Organisers have planned the strike to coincide with the first day of the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe.

The Unite union had recommended, following talks, its 1,700 members accept the new deal.
