Southern Rail Strikes Called Off After Manchester

Strikes planned by workers on Southern rail locked in a bitter dispute over driver-controlled trains have been called off in light of the bombing in Manchester.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union on Southern Railway, Arriva Rail North and Merseyrail were due to walk out for 24 hours on May 30.

General secretary Mick Cash said: ''In light of the horrific bombing in Manchester and the heightened safety and security alerts on the transport service, the RMT executive has taken the decision to suspend the 24-hour strike scheduled for May 30 on Southern, Arriva Rail North and Merseyrail.''

''Our thoughts and solidarity are with the people of Manchester.''
