Rail services in parts of the region face disruption after South Western Railway staff voted in favour of strike action.

Members of the RMT union have agreed to walk out in a dispute over the role of guards on train services.

South Western Railway took over from South West Trains in August.

A date for the strike has not yet been fixed.
