Cleaners on the Tyne and Wear Metro are out on strike for two days. They are unhappy about disciplinary action taken against a colleague. The 48-hour walkout began at 2230 on Sunday night.
The dispute is a separate issue to the one that led to action by Metro drivers last week. The service today should run normally.
