National Express Rail Strike Called Off

Having gone on strike for five of the six days promised over the past three weeks, the RMT, Aslef and TSSA unions last night called an end to their industrial action a day early. A spokesman for Aslef said National Express had offered an "improved" pay and conditions deal which they had recommended their members accept, while a certain infamous Bob crowed that the deal had been "won through the commitment and determination of our members", neglecting to add "at the expense of our commuting brethren". The news will bring some relief for the 150,000 who regularly use Liverpool Street station, although the usual inertia that strikes bring will mean a full service is unlikely to begin before Monday.
