BA wins court bid to stop strikes


British Airways has won a High Court injunction to stop the latest strikes by its cabin staff.

The decision was based on a technicality and whether Unite followed rules in contacting its members with strike result details.

The first of four five-day walkouts had been due to begin at midnight, but will not go ahead following Mr Justice McCombe's decision.

Tony Woodley, the Joint General Secretary of Unite, said this was a "disgraceful day for democracy".
