Air Traffic Controllers 24 hour strike

Strike announced over Inverness air traffic control plans
Air traffic controllers at Highlands and Islands Airports (Hial) are set to strike over plans to centralise services.
Hial wants to install technology that would allow air traffic control services at a number of its airports to be operated from an Inverness hub.
The Prospect union said it would stage a one-day strike on Thursday 29 July.
Hial said it was "extremely disappointed" at the "disruption and inconvenience" it would cause.
Prospect said the one-day strike marked an escalation in industrial action which has been ongoing since January.
