Who's on strike today and how will it affect you? Daily update for December 27

Christmas celebrations may be over but strikes are set to push their way into the New Year.

December 27 is usually the day public transport starts returning to its usual timetable, after a few days of slowing down for Christmas.

But this year, the 27th has coincided with the fourth consecutive day in the current round of rail and bus strikes.

Network Rail workers who are part of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) walked out at 6pm on Christmas Eve.

Fortunately, the industrial action ended at 6am this morning, meaning the schedule should be looking more normal for the rest of the day.

But industrial action often has knock-on effects into the days afterwards, so you should still check your journeys.

Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA) members are also walking out today, tomorrow and December 29.

This means West Midlands Railway Services will not operate at all, with Avanti West Coast warning travellers to only travel if necessary.
