East Midlands Railway's (EMR) services will be significantly reduced on Saturday (July 29) due to industrial action by members of the RMT union.

Many of its routes will be reduced to one train an hour and will only run between 7.30am and 6.30pm, with the last departures starting between 3pm and 4.30pm.

From Monday, July 31, to Saturday, August 5, and Monday, August 7, to Saturday, August 12, there will likely be several late notice cancellations, this is due to action short of a strike by the ASLEF union.
