  • Description

    SYNOPSIS: A mass meeting of London dockers decided by an overwhelming majority tonight to call off the unofficial strike at the Royal group of docks. There's to be a return to work tomorrow.

    One of our cameramen who flew over the docks today found work almost at a standstill. With nearly eleven-thousand men idle-that's more than a third of the total dock labour force - all work had stopped on the great majority of the ships, the remaining ones were undermanned. Altogether sixty-eight vessels were affected.
