  8. Southern overtime ban due to 'total lack of trust'

    Southern rail passengers face fresh disruption to their journeys today due to the train drivers' union Aslef introducing an overtime ban.

    General Secretary Mick Whelan said the ban reflects the "total loss of trust and goodwill between train drivers and the company".

    "Drivers work overtime on an entirely voluntary basis and have no contractual obligation to do so", he said.

    However, Southern's passenger services director Angie Doll said the action was going to be "very inconvenient" but the company would be putting in a "revised timetable".

  9. Dover remains target for people smugglers

    Dover port

    Dover remains the main target for criminals trying to smuggle illegal immigrants into the UK - despite the clearance of the Calais "Jungle".

    That's according to a new report by the National Crime Agency (NCA).

    The NCA says the main threat from crime groups smuggling people into the UK remains roll-on roll-off ferries at Dover.

    The report warns that any reduction in security in France is highly likely to lead to an upsurge in migrant activity.

    Increased security has resulted in fewer breaches - but hasn't deterred migrants from trying to reach Britain.

    It says more will now turn to people traffickers to help them cross the Channel.

    I'll have more on the BBC Radio Kent Breakfast Show with John and Anna - you can listen here.

  10. What Southern services will be affected today?

    Southern has produced this map showing which routes will be affected today. The company says:

    • On routes shown in grey, there will be no Southern service.
    • On routes shown with a dashed grey line, there will be a limited service at peak times only
    • On routes shown in brown, there will be a reduced service and passengers are advised to allow longer for your journey and to avoid peak times if possible

    More information about which services will be affected - as well as a bigger version of the below map - is available on the Southern website by clicking here.
