Greater Anglia rail passengers face more strikes in the New Year.

The RMT rail union say they are planning 24-hour strikes on the 8th, 10th and 12th of January. These are on top of the one planned on the 27th of December.

The action is part of the long-running row over the role of train guards.

The union’s general secretary Mick Cash said they had “no option” but to strike after attempts to negotiate had been “kicked back in our faces.”

Greater Anglia say they are "very disappointed", but plan to run a full service if the strikes go ahead.
