RAIL passengers in East Anglia are facing fresh travel chaos after train drivers announced a week-long strike in a long-running row over pay and conditions.

The drivers' union Aslef said its members at National Express East Anglia will walk out for a week from September 21 after failing to accept a deal aimed at ending the dispute.

Workers staged a series of strikes last month but the action was suspended after a new deal was put forward.

Aslef said its 800 members had refused to accept the deal.
