Rail services could be disrupted this month after signalmen yesterday voted for strike action. In a postal ballot by the Rail, Maritime and Transport union the signalmen, employed by the newly-formed Railtrack company, voted four- to-one for action.

RMT General Secretary Jimmy Knapp said that he would be seeking urgent talks with management. The union is seeking an 11 per cent rise.
