The RMT rail union says it is over the potential introduction of driver-only operated doors on trains.

The dispute mirrors a similar one on the Southern Rail network over the last year.

The union say the train service have failed to guarantee the future role of guards on the service.

RMT will not sit back and wait for the company any longer and we have no option but to begin preparations for a ballot in order to protect safety and access on Greater Anglia services.

The union remains available for further talks around the crucial issue of the guard guarantee.
