Panic at oil pensions strike

Grangemouth plant

Workers at the Grangemouth Ineos plant will strike for two days from Sunday and will shut down the Forties pipeline, which provides a third of the UK's daily oil output.

The government is warning consumers not to panic, as panic-buying of petrol has begun.

The strike of Unite members is against attacks on pensions, including closing the scheme to new entrants.
