Final day of Ryanair talks aimed at solving dispute continuing

The row over base transfers, annual leave and promotions has led to five days of industrial action by some Irish-based pilots.

Negotiations started again this morning led by mediator Kieran Mulvey - and they're expected to last until the end of the day.

He has asked both sides not to make a public comment while the deadlock continues.

If the two sides cannot reach a breakthrough by tonight, it could mean more strikes - and more disruption for passengers.
