Trains cancelled due to planned holiday strike

Train companies have started cancelling services over the Bank Holiday because of a planned strike by thousands of Network Rail workers in a row over pay.

West Coast main line operator Virgin Trains scrapped all services on Monday and Tuesday and warned it would only be able to run a very limited number of trains on its East Coast line over the two days.

CrossCountry Trains, Chiltern Railways, Arriva Trains Wales and First Great Western were among those giving passengers an early idea of the travel chaos they can expect.

Passengers were being advised not to travel unless "absolutely necessary", with widespread cancellations expected, leading to packed trains.

A legal challenge against the strike is due to be heard on Thursday.
