Britain’s biggest trade union has been accused of bullying and intimidation at the home of an executive whose company employs its members.

The Unite union has been accused of targeting the home of Matthew Ingle, the chief executive of Howdens Joinery, which makes kitchens.

Members of the union are said to have protested outside his home near Skipton, North Yorkshire, with with banners, horns and sirens and allegedly bad-mouthed him to neighbours.

The protester's Facebook page, which identified Mr Ingle's home address, included comments from protesters who said he was "running scared" and was a "coward" for not meeting them."

One Facebook entry said: “We came to your town where you do your shopping. We came to your village and spoke to your neighbours. We came to your local pub where you have a drink. We came to your house — but you hid behind your large gates.”
