Visteon protesters stage a sit-in

Former workers at the UK arm of US car parts firm Visteon have occupied a factory in Enfield, north London, the Unite union says.

They are also protesting at a plant in Essex, while 80 workers are still taking part in a sit-in at a factory in Belfast which began on Tuesday.

The workers are angry about more than 500 job losses and what they see as derisory redundancy packages.

Mark Simpson reports.
