Picket lines were drawn today outside Paddington station over proposals to introduce new trains.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union at First Great Western are walking out for three days over the bank holiday weekend.

The union is in dispute over new high-speed trains which it says will hit jobs and on-board catering.

But the train company said there would be no job losses.
