Tomorrow night at 8 'Supermarket Wars'

Supermarket profits are slumping, and online shopping is transforming the market. While the big four struggle, discounters such as Aldi and Lidl are booming. Why?

Profits are slumping, sales are stalling, and online shopping is transforming the market. And while the big four struggle, discounters such as Aldi and Lidl are booming.

Channel 4 Dispatches investigates what went wrong, and is still going wrong, and reveals the tricks of Aldi and Lidl's success.

The supermarkets are fighting back with an aggressive price war, claiming to have slashed the prices of thousands of everyday items.

But can we trust them? Harry Wallop finds that, while there are some savings, other 'special offers' aren't what they're cracked up to be.

Shetland gas plant workers strike over pay

Construction workers at the Total gas plant in Shetland have downed tools in a dispute over pay.

About 900 welders, pipe fitters and riggers staged a sit-in at the site next to the Sullom Voe oil terminal.

Earlier this year, managers Petrofac paid an allowance to staff from the mainland who had to share bedrooms or commute from accommodation barges.

It is believed island tradesmen are now demanding they also receive the extra money.

The latest strike action was not carried out through official channels.

Meetings between workers, management and shop stewards took place throughout the day before staff were sent home for the evening.

Petrofac has told the men they can keep their jobs if they return to work on Thursday.

The workers say they will now pursue the issue through a legal ballot.

Prime Minister David Cameron was due to visit the site on his trip to Shetland, but instead remained in Lerwick.
