Around 40,000 members of railway staff who belong to the RMT Union are taking part in a strike over pay and job security.

The one-day strike (Wednesday, July 25) is due to hit Network Rail and 14 railway firms throughout the country, including Great Northern, Southern and Thameslink.

Govia Thameslink Railway has released its timetable for the strikes, but company officials are urging passengers not to travel unless they have to.

A GTR spokesperson said: "Please only travel if your journey is absolutely necessary, and expect severe disruption.

"The railway will operate limited opening hours with services starting later than normal and finishing in the late afternoon.

"Journey planners have been updated, so please check your first and last trains, as there will be no alternative travel outside of these services.

"Any engineering works planned for this day will not take place, but please ensure you check the service information below for what services will be running."

On Thursday, July 28, the spokesperson said trains will not run before 7am, with a Sunday timetable in place.
