A seven day strike by cleaners on the Tyne and Wear Metro is due to start on Friday night.

They're in dispute with their employer, Churchill, who provide cleaning services onboard trains.

Churchill says it is disappointed with the industrial action.

The RMT union says it's pushing for improved pay.
