Drivers at Southern and Gatwick Express have voted for strike action by a massive majority, in protest at having to close train doors.

A decision on when any action may be held is still to be announced but could be as early as next Tuesday.

Guards are also considering more strikes in the ongoing row.

The drivers are members of the ASLEF Union and the following has just been issued:

Mick Whelan, general secretary, has welcomed the strong mandate from GTR Southern & Gatwick Express members who have voted overwhelmingly in favour of taking action over the dispute concerning the extension of driver only operations.

95.8% of our members voted Yes to taking part in industrial action short of a strike and 84.4% voted Yes to taking part in a strike, on a turnout of just over 82%
