A judgment is expected today following legal action taken by East Midlands Trains against a trade union over a dispute it claimed had been 'invented'.

Members of the Rail Maritime and Transport union (RMT) banned overtime earlier this month over claims of a breakdown in industrial relations over a number of issues, including the scheduling of work in Nottingham.

The union said the action had led to timetable changes and cancellations over the weekend, but the company maintained they were due to driver shortages.

The case was heard in the High Court yesterday, with judgment reserved until today
