Rail workers from this region will go on strike today for the third time this week.

Greater Anglia says its services will not be affected, as members of the RMT union stage a 24 hour walkout over the role of guards.

Workers from three other rail companies, Merseyrail, Northern and South Western Railway, will also go on strike.

Picket lines will again be mounted outside railway stations in the East, as workers continue to make their stand over fears of safety.
