Rail workers are to stage fresh strikes next month in the long-running dispute over guards on trains, causing more travel misery for passengers.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) on Arriva Rail North (Northern) are already striking on Saturday and on January 26.

The union announced that further stoppages will be held on the first three Saturdays of February.

Northern said few services will run after 5pm on Saturday, hitting travellers including shoppers and sports fans.
