Train strikes due in new year over RMT guards row

Train strikes are looming in the new year as rail workers plan a series of 24-hour walkouts in the long-running row over the role of guards.

RMT members at five operators will walk out on 8, 10 and 12 January. Workers at Southern will strike on 8 January.

The five involved are South Western Railway (SWR), Greater Anglia, Merseyrail, Northern and the Isle of Wight's Island Line run by SWR.

Northern rail said it would work to keep customers on the move.

Greater Anglia said it would run a full service on all the strike days.
