Bins are overflowing and litter is rotting on the streets of Birmingham after more refuse collectors voted to take industrial action alongside their binmen colleagues, leaving rubbish left over from Christmas piled high on city pavements. Around 30 members of the union Unison will join the strike after voting unanimously to back their Unite Union workmates, who downed tools weeks ago amid a dispute over legal payments.

Photos taken in the city show the rubbish left over from the festive season fouling the residential area after union and council bosses were unable to break the deadlock, as some locals claim they've had no collection for seven weeks. Members of the Unite Union, who make up more than 300 of the city's bins workforce, are demanding parity with the much smaller group of GMB-affiliated bin workers over a payment made to them to resolve a legal dispute.
