Heathrow Express rail strikes called off

A union has called off strikes on the Heathrow Express after a dispute over disciplinary action taken against two employees was resolved.

The Rail Maritime and Transport union had walked out twice and had scheduled two more strikes for this weekend.

The industrial action had been in protest at the sacking of a driver and action against another worker.

The Heathrow Express rail link runs from the west London airport to Paddington station.
