COMMUTERS faced disruption this morning as a second wave of strikes by railway workers began.

Members of the Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union and Aslef went on strike again today (Thursday), with further action planned for tomorrow.

As a result, no National Express services are running between Cambridge and London Liverpool Street, and many commuters have switched to First Capital Connect services to London King's Cross, which pass through Royston and other stations in Crow Country.

Trains to the capital are expected to be crowded over the next couple of days as they deal with hundreds of extra passengers.
