Workers at the Port of Felixstowe have voted in favour of industrial action over changes to bonus payments.

The Unite union balloted members on changes to their terms and conditions of employment.

The union said an "overwhelming" majority voted for action and talks would be taking place at the conciliation service Acas next week.

Hutchison Ports, which owns Felixstowe docks, said it would not be commenting on the ballot.

Unite said more than 90% of the port's 2,500 workers were in the union.
