A series of proposed strikes which would have affected train services heading out of Norwich have been called off - but action planned for Thursday and Friday is still set to go ahead.

Train drivers union ASLEF had been planning industrial action on East Midlands Trains, which run services from Norwich to Peterborough, Nottingham and Liverpool, on July 31 and on August 3, 7 and 10.

But those strikes have been called off, as were the strikes planned for last Friday and Monday .

However, people travelling from Norwich still face massive disruption because the ASLEF members who work for National Express Norwich, along with workers from the Rail Maritime Transport (RMT) union are still intending to strike over pay and conditions.

Bosses at National Express East Anglia said they 'strongly recommend' that people do not try to travel on their train services on Thursday and Friday because industrial action means the service will be 'very limited'.

More details of alternative journey options will be available on the National Rail Enquiries website at nationalrail.co.uk
