A planned 24-hour strike by hundreds of staff at 17 of the UK's biggest railway stations was called off today.

Members of the Transport Salaried Staffs Association and Rail Maritime and Transport union were due to walk out at noon tomorrow in a row with Network Rail (NR) over reorganisation plans.

The TSSA said it had reached agreement with NR on a no compulsory redundancy deal covering staff reorganisation at the stations, while talks will continue over pay and conditions.

Stations affected include Glasgow, Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham and London's Kings Cross, Euston, Waterloo and Victoria.
