Rail strike: What are driver-only-operated trains?

Drivers and guards at Northern, Southern rail and Merseyrail have started a 24-hour strike in a dispute over the role of guards.

The RMT union is opposing plans to make trains driver-only-operated.

Management at all three companies say they want a negotiated solution and deny jobs will be lost.
