Rail services through Lincolnshire and Newark affected by strike action this Friday, February 2

Rail passengers are being warned to check train schedules this week as some routes experience reduced services due to ongoing strikes.

Workers from the Rail, Maritime, and Transport union are currently engaged in a series of strikes as part of a prolonged dispute concerning jobs, pay, and working conditions.

Numerous strikes occurred in December and January, coupled with an overtime ban that was active over the Christmas period.
