Transport strike 'will be minor'


Border staff in the PCS union are planning to take strike action on the eve of the Olympics, and the RMT transport union is in talks with South-West Trains after staff voted for an overtime ban.

Peter Hendy, Transport Commissioner for London, believes the strike will be "minor".

He told the Today programme that with underground staff "we always have some threat of industrial action, it will make no difference at all to the underground service."
