It's only the start of the second half of industrial action...yay!
Good morning. Coming off the back of a bank holiday weekend and waving goodbye to the summer, I'll aim to keep it brief this morning.
Believe it or not, this is only the beginning of the second half of the industrial strike currently besieging the ABC borough. We wait with bated breath to see if the deadlock can be broken...at this stage, I'm going to suggest you don't hold your breath.
Anyway, we'll try and keep on top of the issue over the next few weeks...after that, who knows...
In the meantime, here's what's been making the headlines over the last few days.
