Hogmanay travellers in Scotland yesterday faced disruption as rail crews went on strike. ScotRail said fewer than 50 per cent of RMT conductors and ticket examiners obeyed the latest strike call, enabling it to run 80 per cent of services. The union said that 50 per cent of trains were affected.

The walkout follow the disciplining of 17 union members involved in an earlier series of one-day stoppages over productivity and other issues.
