Rail strikes suspended

A major breakthrough has been announced in talks over guards on Northern services.

Long-running strike action has been suspended on Northern Rail services, which affected Saturday trains in East Yorkshire.

It's after talks at ACAS ended two years of deadlock over the use of guards on trains.

The rail union, the RMT, says the company has guaranteed a conductor on all trains for the duration of the current franchise.

Northern has welcomed the announcement but says full services won't be restored this weekend.
