Southern rail passengers face more disruption as two-day strike begins
Two out of five trains cancelled and no service on some routes during 48-hour walkout in dispute over role of conductors
Commuters on the Southern rail network which connects towns on the south-coast with London face more travel misery as a two-day strike gets under way.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union have begun a 48-hour walkout as part of their dispute over proposed changes to the role of conductors on trains. The company plans to make drivers responsible for closing doors – something that already happens on many services across the country.
