Train drivers from Arriva Trains Wales are planning 48-hour strike action to start on Thursday next week.

RMT has said a strike has been called after Arriva Trains Wales has been "dragging its heels" over a revised pay off for employees.

The strike will begin at 00:01 on Thursday 22nd October until 23:59 on Friday 23rd October.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash says "they've been left with no alternative" but to call strike action.
