Talks to avoid five-day Southern rail strike adjourned

Talks to avoid a five-day strike on Southern trains have been adjourned until Friday.

Govia Thameslink (GTR) and the RMT rail union will meet for a third day at the conciliation service Acas from midday.

The two sides are in a long-running dispute about GTR's plans for drivers to open and close carriage doors instead of conductors.

The walkout is due to begin next Monday, with 40% of normal services cancelled.

BBC South East Today spoke to frustrated Southern passengers.
