Third day of disruption for South Western Railway passengers this week


Passengers on South Western Railway services face a third day of disruption this week because of strike action.

Members of the RMT Union have been walking out because of a disagreement over the role of guards on trains.

The company is refusing to guarantee a second member of staff on every train and there are currently no plans for any peace talks.

The industrial action is creating knock-on delays from Berkshire and Basingstoke in and out of Waterloo.

Guards in the RMT also stopped work on Monday and Wednesday - where around 1 in 3 services were cancelled on each of these day.

The Department for Transport has denied that the dispute is about safety.
