Train drivers at LNER, Northern, Transpennine Express and CrossCountry are set to stage a series of one-day strikes this December.

Members of the Aslef union will also be holding a nine-day ban on overtime as the long-running dispute over pay deepens.

The union said the new walkouts will “ratchet up the pressure” on train companies and the Government to give train drivers their first pay rise in more than four years.
