Cleaning staff on the Tyne and Wear Metro network have announced a further 48 hour strike in an ongoing pay row.

Transport union RMT confirmed cleaners working for Churchill would go on strike from the evening of 5 August.

The union, which has backed three previous stoppages, claims that Churchill has offered no increase in basic pay, despite a rise in profits.

DB Regio Tyne and Wear, which operates the Metro on behalf of Nexus, said contingencies were in place.

So far no-one from Churchill has been available for comment.
