Workers on Merseyrail are to be balloted for industrial action in a dispute over the role of guards, the RMT union said.
A deal to end a bitter dispute between Southern Railway and the Aslef union over driver-only trains is set to be announced.
The two sides have been holding lengthy talks in a bid to resolve the long-running row which has sparked a series of strikes.
Sources said an agreement was imminent, bringing some relief to passengers who have suffered months of disruption because of industrial action and staff shortages.
However, the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union is still in dispute with Southern over changes to the role of conductors.
The RMT announced it is to ballot workers on Merseyrail for industrial action over the role of guards.
Campaigners for the "Shrewsbury 24", pickets from the building industry who it's claimed were wrongly arrested and jailed back in 1973 following an industrial dispute are backing a campaign for a "Hillsborough law".
The pickets who included Ricky Tomlinson who went on to become an actor say they targeted by the authorities who wanted to make an example of them. They have also protested their innocence.
Today the campaign met with other Justice groups and the Leigh MP Andy Burnham. He wants parliament to bring in the new law to allow better access to funding for legal cases.
The law would also require public bodies to be fully accountable.
Children as young as ten have been victims of so-called 'revenge porn' in the North West.
Exclusive figures obtained by Granada Reports show that since a new law came into effect in 2015, there have been 500 incidents reported to police of people sharing intimate pictures online.
Shockingly, in Greater Manchester alone eight of these children were under the age of thirteen. A further 150 across the region were in their teens.
A former police officer is so worried about the problem of internet safety he has launched a new app to help protect children under thirteen when they are on social media.
