    I spoke to passengers at Brighton station during yesterday's 24-hour walkout.

    One woman didn't think there was a strike being held today but was under the impression previous strikes had been held on Sundays because she'd suffered so much disruption at weekends.

    Dog owners are being warned they could be prosecuted and their pets shot dead if they allow them to chase sheep.

    It's lambing season, and farmers across the South East are already reporting cases of sheep worrying.

  14. RMT strike: Analysis by BBC Transport Correspondent

    Richard Westcott

    Transport correspondent

    A Southern train

    It's the South and the North today, but could this dispute keep spreading across England?

    The government's made it clear that it wants an expansion of "driver-only-operated" trains and that puts it at loggerheads with the unions.

    The Department for Transport talks about introducing them in the next two franchises about to be awarded, South Western and West Midlands.

    The unions say it's a long-term ploy to get rid of all train guards and save money - they claim it puts passenger safety at risk.

    But rail bosses argue it's about modernising the service, freeing up the second on-board person to deal with passengers rather than closing the train doors.

    Handing all the safety jobs to the driver means you don't HAVE to have two people on every train before it can leave the station. That would shrink the power of the RMT, because more trains would be able to run if their guards went on strike in the future.
