Rail Strikes: 80% of trains cancelled amid latest RMT walk-out

Four out of five trains were cancelled today, as 40,000 members of the RMT union started five days of industrial action with a 48 hour walkout across England, Scotland and Wales.

Travellers were urged to avoid all but the most essential train travel, while there was also disruption on the roads as National Highways staff also went on strike.

With more stoppages planned across the public sector later this month, 2023 is starting as it means to go on.
