Workers on London's Docklands Light Railway are to stage a series of strikes in the new year in a long-running dispute over issues including the use of agency staff.

Members of the RMT union will walk out for between 24 hours and four days following a previous stoppage last month which disrupted travel in the capital.

The union is in dispute with operators Keolis Amey over claims of bullying, breaches of agreements and "abuses" of the use of agency staff.
