Immigration workers have voted to strike in a row over terms and conditions, threatening disruption to holidaymakers at UK ports and airports later in the summer.

Members of the Public and Commercial Services union backed industrial action in protest at new shift patterns and other changes.

Talks between the union and the UK Border Agency were held today in a bid to avert a strike, and PCS leaders will meet tomorrow to decide their next move, including the possibility of a walkout on 5 August.
