A long-running dispute involving workers building the new Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport has ended after a new pay offer was accepted.

Employees of Laing O'Rourke voted in favour of a deal to improve their bonus pay by 80p an hour.

A spokeswoman for Heathrow said: "We are obviously pleased the company and the unions have resolved the dispute."

The workers have staged a series of strikes as part of a campaign for a 1 an hour increase.
