Southern strikes: Soldiers to drive buses

There have been contingency plans put in place to ensure commuters get to work in case any disruption continues.

Military personnel were tipped to be called into drive buses carrying passengers in the worst hit areas.

However, the Ministry of Defence said it had no plans to deploy military personnel in response to the strikes.

“It’s ridiculous to use the army when the government could easily settle the dispute,” says Paul Cox of the RMT union.
