Workers at the Cowley plant, where BMW makes Minis, had been on strike.

BMW workers in the UK have accepted a revised offer over the closure of their final salary pension scheme, ending the threat of further strikes.

The agreement follows a series of stoppages at plants making the Mini and Rolls Royce cars.

More than 80% of members of the Unite union approved the deal which affects workers at four sites.

The union said it had won a much bigger transitional payment for staff, plus other guarantees.
