UK workers at BMW have voted overwhelmingly to go on strike in a dispute over pensions, the Unite union has announced.

BMW workers making engines and the Mini and Rolls-Royce motorcars plan to strike over plans to close their final salary pension scheme.

The union says the proposal could see some UK workers lose up to £160,000 in retirement income.

The action involves some 3,500 workers. BMW has yet to comment on the move.
