Passengers on Southern Rail in the UK are experiencing a second day of strike action as train operators and staff continue to dispute who should operate the doors.

As the industrial action continues, Southern representatives will meet with the RMT and Aslef unions to seek an end to the dispute.

For the second day in succession Southern has confirmed no trains will operate on Wednesday.

The company has advised passengers not to travel.

Airline passengers will see a limited Gatwick Express shuttle service to and from London Victoria.

That service is operating every 30 minutes, while Thameslink is operating a normal timetable.

The 48-hour strike by members of the drivers’ union Aslef over the introduction of driver-only trains is due to end at midnight, with another strike planned for Friday.
