Postal workers call off strike

Postal workers have voted to call off industrial action due to take place on Saturday and Monday in Somerset.

Last week members of the Communication Workers Union in Bridgwater voted to strike over full-time jobs being replaced with part-time positions.

But at a meeting in the town on Friday morning a decision was taken to carry out deliveries and collections as normal in the area.

It was not known why the decision was reversed.
