The company’s warning comes as the RMT prepare for a third day of industrial action over a conductors dispute, while the ASLEF union have refused to allow drivers to work overtime.

Southern passenger services director Angie Doll said: ‘We will be working hard to run as many services as possible tomorrow, but regrettably I have to warn passengers that services will be severely impacted, with reductions and cancellations across all routes.

‘With today’s strike ending at midnight, despite our best efforts, some trains and crew will still not be in position for tomorrow’s service; and the overtime ban will continue to have a serious impact.’
