Ammon News - Dock workers at the UK's largest container port have gone on strike for the first time in 30 years.

About 1,900 members of the Unite union at Felixstowe in Suffolk are walking out for eight days in a dispute over pay, according to BBC.

Unite said members rejected a 7% pay offer from the Felixstowe Dock and Railway Company, which it said was below the rate of inflation.

A port spokesman said the strike was "disappointing".

A picket line formed early on Sunday as the strike began, and the union said it would be manned until 22:00 on each day of the walkout.
