“We’re running an amended Sunday service with no services before 7am. Services from some stations will be later than this.

Check ahead & recheck your journey for up to date info http://nationalrail.co.uk.”

Day after strike day trains:

Southern said the disruption from an RMT strike day will have a knock-on effect as the railway will be unavailable overnight, meaning that trains and crew will ‘not be in the correct locations to provide a normal service’.

A spokesperson added: “We expect first services to be extremely crowded and you may not be able to board your chosen service.
