Travel disruption is expected across the region this week as East Midlands Trains maintenance and enginerring staff strike.

Around 80 Unite members have walked out on Sunday 27th July until Thursday 31st over a row over a 2.5 per cent pay offer.

A replacement bus service has been set-up from Nottingham to Worksop.

It is likely to cause disruption due to the school summer holidays starting.

A post on the East Midlands Trains website said it had put forward a ‘very reasonable and fair offer.’

It also said: “We are therefore disappointed that Unite has chosen to take this action, clearly attempting to cause disruption.”

Travellers have been advised to take extra time to plan their routes.
