Spirits were high as RMT General Secretary, Bob Crow, visited the picket line. Management from all over the country as far away as Kent have been brought in to break the strike, but the strike began to bite today with service cancellations on Valley lines.

Yesterday services were cancelled on the South Wales mainline when Permanent Way workers worked to rule in repairing a broken cable.
