The RMT transport union has called two more 24-hour strikes by guards and on-train catering staff at seven train operating companies - on 11 and 23 September - and has ordered a six-day overtime ban from 16 September to 21 September.

The companies hit by the action will be: CrossCountry Trains; Merseyrail Electrics; Regional Railways North East; North West Regional Railways; North London Railways; ScotRail and South Wales and West Railways. Staff at nine more companies are being balloted on action, with the results due on 12 September. Given a statutory seven-day notice period, employees at all 16 companies could walk out on 21 September.
