The Transport Secretary is calling for driver's union Aslef to stop next week's strike after the Office of Rail and Road confirmed Southern Railway's plans for driver-controlled trains are safe.

Unions have been taking strike action over plans to introduce trains where the driver controls the operation of the doors, which the unions claim is unsafe.
