London Midland strikes called off

Train drivers' union Aslef have announced an end to their industrial action against London Midland that's caused passengers six weeks of disruption.

Aslef say they've reached an agreement with the company in their row over pay and conditions after "several days of intense talks."

Trains from places like Northampton, Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard and Hemel Hempstead have been affected by the action, which has seen a shortage of drivers willing to work overtime.  This has had a particuarly severe impact on trains on Sundays, with London Midland urging passengers not to travel on those days.

Aslef say the terms of the agreement they've made with London Midland will now be put to Aslef members for their endorsement.
