Flights cancelled in Italy strikes






Flights have been cancelled into and out of Italy due to a general strike.<

British Airways and other airlines have cancelled or rescheduled flights to the country due to the eight-hour strike today.

Air services are due to be disrupted from 10am until 6pm while train services are being impacted from 9am until 5pm.

Knock-on delays are expected into tomorrow (Wednesday).

Millions of Italian trade union members are taking part in the strike which are in protest against the government's latest austerity measures.

Larbour organisations have been angered by a new clause that will make it easier to dismiss workers.
