Southern rail strike causes worst disruption in 20 years | Business | The Guardian
Tens of thousands of commuters have faced travel chaos on the Southern rail network in an escalating dispute over who closes train doors. A strike by train drivers has brought Southern rail services to a complete halt after the court of appeal rejected a second attempt by the rail company to block the action.
Transport secretary Chris Grayling dismissed the strike as “futile” and threatened to introduce measures to restrict strikes on the rail network. He said: “We are thinking very carefully about how we take things forward. I’m not going to rule anything in or anything out today.”
