London's Heathrow airport staff plan strike action

Holidaymakers jetting off on summer breaks could be hit by strike action planned at London's Heathrow airport.
 
More than 4,000 workers at the airport - including customer service, engineering and security staff - have voted to strike over pay.
 
The protest action is planned for July 26 and July 27, August 5, 6, 23 and 24.
 
The worker's union, Unite, says it could create summer travel chaos.
 
However, Heathrow says it has contingency plans to remain open and operate safely.
 
Unite says members voted in eight ballots to support the protest action after an 18-month pay rise offer averaging 2.7% was rejected.
