More than 100,000 postal workers will walk out on Friday in a dispute over pay, in what is being described as the biggest strike of the summer so far.

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) said its members are taking industrial action for a "dignified, proper pay rise" after they voted in favour by 97.6% in a ballot.
