A PLANNED strike by thousands of Network Rail workers in a row over pay, which would have affected thousands of Bank Holiday travellers, has been suspended.

CrossCountry Trains, Chiltern Railways, Arriva Trains Wales, First Great Western and ScotRail were among those giving passengers an early idea of the travel chaos they can expect, but the potential crisis has been averted thanks to ongoing talks.

Passengers were being advised not to travel unless “absolutely necessary”, with widespread cancellations expected, leading to packed trains.
