Misery for commuters as train guards stage strike

Another day, another strike by Southern Rail staff.

Today's action is the latest in a series of walkouts since April in an ongoing row over the role of guards on trains.

Only 60 percent of the company's services are running during the two days of industrial action.

Services west of Brighton have been badly affected - other trains are operating on that route but they have been very busy.

The line from Eastbourne has a significantly reduced service. And between Redhill and Tonbridge there are no trains running at all.

The RMT union says the strike is being 'fully supported' and warns the dispute could continue until Christmas. Malcolm Shaw reports.

Protesters have been gathering in Calais this morning ahead of a planned demonstration against the "Jungle" migrant camp.

British cross-Channel travellers have been warned they face major disruption as French shopkeepers, police, unionists and farmers join hauliers in calling for the northern section of the camp to be demolished.

A trade association has warned drivers will stand their ground until they see action to dismantle the camp.

A blockade of lorries and tractors held up traffic on the roads around Calais with a "go slow" protest against the "Jungle" migrant camp.

A convoy of trucks and tractors set off from Dunkirk to the north, while another made its way from Boulogne to the south at 7.30am local time on the A16, which runs along the edge of the town.

They are set to converge near the entrance to the Channel Tunnel and ferry terminals.

No traffic was being allowed to pass the blockade and police were stationed at the junctions, apparently to stop vehicles joining the motorway.

Hundreds of protesters also marched on foot along the road leading directly to the port.
