Western Morning News (Saturday) - - Uk And World News -

Rail pas­sen­gers will en­dure fresh travel dis­rup­tion to­day be­cause of more strikes in the bit­ter dis­pute over the role of guards on trains. Mem­bers of the Rail, Mar­itime and Trans­port union at South Western Rail­way (SWR) and Ar­riva Rail North (ARN) will walk out for 24 hours, with fur­ther ac­tion planned. Picket lines will be mounted out­side sta­tions across the two re­gions and some trains will be can­celled or re­placed with buses. ARN will op­er­ate fewer than a third of its nor­mal ser­vices, while SWR said half of trains will run.
