TRAIN passengers in Worcestershire are being hampered by strikes across the region.

ASLEF, the trade union representing train drivers, has announced the industrial action.

There will be an overtime ban between Monday, May 6 to Saturday, May 11, with no West Midlands Railway services operating on Wednesday, May 8.

Services will be subject to disruption and cancellations during the period and may be formed of fewer carriages on some routes.

Passengers have been advised to travel at quieter times if possible and to check planned routes on their journey before travelling.

They are also advised to check the first and last train times on each day impacted by industrial action.
