Union leaders have warned of the first strike at car giant Ford since the 1970s, in a row over pensions.

Unite said it had walked out of negotiations with the company, claiming it was insisting on closing its pension scheme to new entrants.

Officials said it was the “thin end of the wedge” and will lead to the ultimate closure of the company’s staff final salary pension scheme.
