Some 250 workers at the Astra Zeneca pharmaceutical firm in Macclesfield, Cheshire, are set to continue with strikes after talks between bosses and the GMB union broke down.

Allan Black, GMB national officer, said, “We are now at day ten of this strike action. This is disappointing but responsibility rests with management.”

Workers now plan to restart their industrial action.
