Several Chiltern Railway lines in Buckinghamshire will not run on July 27 due to another set of strikes.

The protests will be the second to occur this summer following the initial demonstrations in June, with the third set taking place three days later on July 30.

This is due to the Rail, Maritime, and Transport union members (RMT) stating that there has not been an improvement in pay offers it has received from the National Rail (NR).
