Further planned strikes by waste collection workers around Bath have been called off.

Bath and North East Somerset (Banes) Council said a pay dispute between the Unite union and the contractor Kier was over following successful talks.

The council said a backlog of waste would be cleared by the weekend.

Only half of scheduled collections have taken place recently due to industrial action over what Unite called a "glaring pay inequality".
