Greater Anglia is among five companies affected.

The first strike was held Monday, another is due to take place on Friday.

"No one should be in any doubt, these disputes are about putting the safety of the travelling public before the profits of the private train companies."

– Mick Cash, RMT General Secretary

Greater Anglia is running a full service, staffed partly by managers acting as guards.
