First drivers are demanding to be paid the same amount as their colleagues around the country.

The company has offered to raise the current £6.60 hourly rate. But the offer has so far been dependent on other conditions being imposed.

The Transport and General Workers' Union said strikes have also been planned for 7, 19 and 21 November.
