The organisers of next Wednesday's One Direction concert in Sunderland are urging a 'common sense' ending to a planned strike on the Metro system on the day of the performance.

The Stadium of Light says it's incredibly frustrated that a solution hasn't been agreed by the RMT Union and DB Regio, which operates the Metro.
