Northern Rail: Guards row sparks fresh strikes

Passengers on Northern Rail services are facing further disruption with a fresh strike in a long-running dispute over guards on trains. The company said it would run as many services as possible between 07:00 and 19:00 BST. The union claims imposing driver-only services is a risk to public safety. "Regional director for Northern, Sharon Keith, said:"On each day of the strike action we will be running fewer services and expect those services we do operate to be extremely busy.

"We urge the union to abandon these strikes, work with the train operator and make passengers' services their number one priority."
