New proposals have been put forward aimed at ending a long-running dispute between the oil company Total and workers on three of its platforms are taking place.

Unite union members working on the Elgin, Alwyn and Dunbar platforms have taken part in several strikes.

The concerns include a move to a three-weeks-on and three-weeks-off rota.

The union said a planned 12-hour strike on Monday would be suspended while a consultative ballot is held.

A revised deal was rejected earlier this week, following talks with the independent arbitration service Acas but more talks were held on Thursday.
