LONDON (Reuters) - More than 600 UK Border Force officers at Heathrow Airport, Britain's busiest hub, will take strike action for four days from April 11 in a dispute over working conditions, the PCS trade union said on Thursday.

The officers, who carry out immigration controls and passport checks on behalf of Britain's Home Office, or interior ministry, voted to take strike action last week over a new roster and changes to shift patterns.
