Rail passengers will face another weekend of travel chaos with thousands of train staff set to strike in a long-running row over pay. 

Some 40,000 workers are set to take industrial action on Saturday, with only one-in-five trains running nationwide.

And of those that are still running, passengers have been warned to expect severe disruption, with many operating a limited timetable.

For football fans, it will be another weekend of carnage, with the strike action set to blight journeys to five Premiership games, including clashes between Man City. Spurs and Chelsea 

The strike action is the latest chapter of the long-winded dispute over pay and working conditions.
