A bus strike in Weymouth and Bridport scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed.

A meeting between union Unite and First Bus is scheduled for 7am tomorrow.

Last Monday some drivers walked out as part of a dispute over differeing pay rates for drivers across the region.

Weymouth drivers believe they're paid less than those in Bournemouth and other towns.

Unite spokesman Bob Lanning's told Wessex FM they've given the company notice of a strike next Monday (3rd February).

He says if they don't reach any 'common ground'  with management, that strike will go ahead.
