COMMUTERS will face rail chaos tomorrow and on Friday after crunch talks to stop strike action broke down.
A 48-hour strike by workers at National Express East Anglian will go ahead from midnight after talks aimed at resolving a row over pay and conditions ended unsuccessfully today.
The Rail Maritime and Transport union said it expected its members at National Express East Anglia to "solidly support" the walk-out.
Workers staged a 48-hour stoppage last week, causing travel nightmare for tens of thousands of commuters.
