Passengers have been warned not to travel on Norfolk's trains as strikes are causing widespread disruption.

Train drivers who are part of the Aslef union walked out for the third strike in the past four days, crippling services in the region.

An hourly train service will operate on the following Greater Anglia routes: - Norwich, Colchester and London Liverpool Street.

No other Greater Anglia services will operate on any other routes.

Greater Anglia are advising passengers to "only travel if absolutely necessary."

Aslef is embroiled in a near two-year long dispute over pay, with no sign of a breakthrough and no talks planned.

The union says the dispute has cost the industry more than £2bn, way more than it would have cost to resolve the conflict.

Greater Anglia said its first trains of the day will start later and last trains finish earlier than normal, excluding the Stansted Express.

Aslef members at 16 train companies are also banning overtime on Monday and Tuesday which will disrupt services.

Aslef general secretary Mick Whelan said his members remained solidly behind the industrial action, and criticised the Government and rail companies for the lack of contact over the past year.

A Department for Transport spokesperson said: “Aslef is the only rail union continuing to strike, targeting passengers and preventing their own members from voting on the pay offer that remains on the table."
