Bin lorry blocked by line of union members

Refuse truck drivers in Eastbourne have blocked an attempt by non-striking council workers to drive a bin lorry, as a strike enters its third day.

BBC political reporter Ben Weisz filmed the lorry as it attempted to cross a line of union members.

Eastbourne Borough Council has offered a 7% pay increase but the GMB union is holding out for an offer closer to 20%.

A further eleven strike days are planned for late January.
