Rail passengers face further disruption after the RMT union announced more strike dates.

The strikes will be held across four 48-hour periods on 13-14 and 16-17 December and 3-4 and 6-7 January.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said the strikes would send “a clear message that we want a good deal on job security, pay and conditions”.

RMT members at Network Rail and 14 train companies voted last week in favour of further industrial action.
