No trains in England at Christmas due to strikes

Due to nationwide strikes, almost no trains run in Great Britain during Christmas. The strike also affects train services to London’s Heathrow and Stansted airports.

Traditionally there is no train service on Christmas Day. Route operator Network Rail has announced that no trains will be running on Boxing Day due to strike action by the RMT union.

The RMT called for significant pay rises and better working conditions. Rail providers, backed by the Conservative government, reject this.
