Bin workers in Bexley, south London have had enough. Left with no hand sanitiser, yet having to collect everybody's rubbish amid the coronavirus crisis, they walked out on strike.

The workers are already balloting to strike over low wages and a bullying culture.

One worker said: "Due to a lack of hand sanitiser in the depot the Bexley bin workers have contracted a bad case of BSE - Big Strike Energy. This is honestly one of the best union meetings I have ever attended.

"Over a 120 in attendance and a unanimous and militant determination to see this strike through."
