Sussex train strikes: These are the services that are still running

Strike action by transport union RMT has left Sussex with massively reduced rail services from Southern Rail today (Tuesday, June 21).

While Southern Rail staff are not striking themselves, the national action is severely affecting all journeys on Southern Rail, Gatwick Express, Thameslink and Great Northern between Tuesday 21 June and Sunday 26 June.

Southern has produced this list of which trains will be running this week.
