LINDSEY PROTESTS CONTINUE

HUNDREDS of sacked contract workers burnt their dismissal letters outside Lindsey oil refinery yesterday in a symbolic act of defiance against French owner Total, which had given them until last night to reapply for their jobs. Thousands of workers from across the UK are expected to down tools today in support of the 647 staff at the Lincolnshire plant, who were sacked on Friday for taking unofficial strike action.
