BMW workers reject new offer in pensions dispute

Workers at car giant BMW have voted to reject an offer aimed at resolving a long-running dispute over pensions.

Workers have already staged four walkouts during the dispute, which is over the closure of a final-salary pension scheme. BMW said the offer was "Fair" and it was disappointed at the ballot result.
