On August 13, members of the Aslef union of nine British rail companies went on strike for 24 hours. It comes ahead of more protests planned in the coming weeks amid escalating disputes over jobs, pay and conditions.

According to Sky News, Aslef has set up pickets outside train stations, and officials say they expect continued public support despite the fallout from the action. It is noted that tens of thousands of passengers, including football fans, tourists and vacationers, were affected.

Mick Whelan, Aslef's general secretary, said rail companies could not offer pay rises without permission from the Department for Transport and warned that more strikes were likely if the long-running dispute was not resolved soon.
