Train Strike Called Off
Drivers on East Midlands Trains have called off a strike that would have caused problems for people trying to get to the Olympics.
Members of the Aslef union at East Midlands Trains were due to walk out on August. 6, 7 and 8 in a row over pensions.
The action threatened disruption for people in places like Bedford, Kettering, Wellingborough, Corby, Leicester, Derby and Nottingham hoping to go to some of the athletics finals at the Olympic Stadium.
The two sides said that "constructive" discussions had led to the action being averted.
A joint statement said: "East Midlands Trains and Aslef are pleased to confirm that a positive settlement of all issues relating to planned pensions changes has been reached.
