Visteon job protests spread


Sacked workers from the car components firm Visteon have been occupying three factories in protest.

The action began with an overnight sit-in at the plant in Belfast on Tuesday.

Fifty people who were sacked on Tuesday made their voices heard on the roof of the plant in Enfield, north London. Others have been holding a sit-in in Basildon in Essex.

The protesters claimed the company's former owner and main customer, Ford, had promised redundancy contracts which they now want to see honoured.
