Southern Railway workers will stage the final day of a 72-hour walkout today in the bitter dispute over the role of conductors, with further industrial action planned.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) were said to be ‘standing firm’ during the three-day stoppage, which has led to the cancellation of hundreds of trains.

The latest strike will end at midnight tonight.

The union is planning further strikes in the coming weeks, including one on Bonfire Night, which will affect people going to the popular bonfire event in Lewes, Sussex.
