LEYLAND CARS/LONGBRIDGE - Production of the Mini was halted by a strike at Longbridge today, when 4,500 men were laid off because a vehicle tester was dismissed for allegedly assaulting another worker.
Derek Miles, the vehicle tester, believed someone was being ‘friendly’ with his wife.
He walked a quarter of a mile across the Longbridge factory and then hit the wrong man, a case of mistaken identity. Later, management and union agreed to discuss the incident in the normal grievances procedure. The incident went to court with the outcome on June 28th 1978.

Is anyone being 'friendly' with your wife?
