BREAKING: STRIKE CANCELLED.......
Rail workers on the Virgin Trains East Coast line which runs through Peterborough are to strike on Bank Holiday Monday in a dispute over the sacking of a colleague.
The union say Mark Doughty was sacked for telling first class passengers they could not have a cooked breakfast because of a broken boiler and staff shortages.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union on Virgin East
Coast trains based at Edinburgh's Waverley station will walk out for 24 hours on Monday.
The staff work as on-board train managers and catering managers on trains in and out of the station, including the intercity route to London King's Cross.
It is the second time they will strike over the dispute, with staff walking out on Good Friday.
