Commuters in the region face disruption as rail staff go on strike today.

Union members at Arriva Rail North are walking out for twenty four hours as part of the long running dispute over the role of guards on trains.

Staff will also strike at Greater Anglia and South Western Railway in the dispute which has been going on for two years.
