Another wave of Northern Rail strikes begin today, causing disruption for passengers across the Border region.

Rail union RMT brought on the industrial action in continuing the dispute over staffing and the introduction of driver-only trains.

Members of the RMT union on Northern services have walked out for 24 hours today, and again on Thursday and Saturday.

Northern said it will concentrate on running as many services as possible between 7.00am and 7.00pm on Tuesday and Thursday, while services will start later and finish earlier on Saturday.
