A final set of proposals has been drawn up in a bid to avert strikes by fuel-tanker drivers, it was announced last night.

The Unite union has been given until 21 May to decide whether to accept the deal, removing the immediate threat of industrial action.

The development followed 12 hours of talks between the union and officials from distribution firms in the dispute over pensions, health and safety and other issues.
