South Western Railway passengers can expect major disruptions on Saturday 18 August as RMT union members plan to go on strike. The dispute is over the role of guards and services will be severely reduced.

It comes in the middle of a series of strikes across the summer. Those travelling to and from Exeter should expect replacement buses. No trains will run between Bristol Temple Meads to Salisbury or Yeovil Pen Mill.
