Rail strikes have brought Evesham train station to a halt.

The stationmaster at Evesham, Gary Hale, has confirmed that there are no trains running through the town all day.

This comes as a result around 40,000 members of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers going on strike over pay, jobs and conditions.

Despite this, Mr Hale says that people have still been showing up.

He said: "I've been here at the station since 5am and I've seen a handful of people, mainly young'uns who don't watch the news."

According to Great Western Railway, strikes are due to take place on June 21, 23 and 25.

However train services are expected to be impacted on the days without planned strike action as well due to knock-on effects, with around 60 per cent of normal services running.

"Tomorrow onwards, possibly some trains but no guarantees," added Mr Hale.

"GWR is advising people not to travel between now and Sunday inclusive."
