Rail passengers travelling to the Olympics in Weymouth and Portland could face travel chaos after South West Trains workers voted to take industrial action.

Up to 1,000 members of the Rail Maritime and Transport union will work to rule, including a ban on overtime, from Friday, the day of the opening ceremony, to August 12, the last day of the Games.

The union has been seeking a bonus for its members for working during the Games, but SWT insisted it had already agreed a wage deal which covers the Olympics period.
