British Airways is set to resume talks with the Unite union later on Wednesday in an attempt to avert further strike action, the airline said.

Cabin crew are currently in their third day of a five-day strike, protesting over job and pay conditions.

The Unite union representing the bulk of the crew has threatened another 10 days of strikes if the dispute is not resolved.

No further details on the talks were available.
