A pay freeze will go ahead at charity Action for Children after unions accepted a £60 per worker payment to call off strikes.

The Unison and Unite unions accepted the offer to end a long-running dispute over pay.

The money will go into December pay packets so staff get it before Christmas.

“No one is pretending that this is a fantastic settlement,” said Mike Short, a national officer at Unison.
