The Southern Rail crisis is over

A deal to end a bitter dispute between Southern Railway and the Aslef union has been announced. The two sides have been holding talks in a bid to end the row over driver-operated doors. 

Passengers have suffered 10 months of strike action, cancellation and delay. Last summer the rail firm was forced to cancel around 350 trains a day under an emergency timetable.  

The other union involved, the RMT says it's still in dispute with Southern - however with the roll-out its driver-operated door programme complete - it is belived any future walkouts by conductors - would not lead to widespread disruption .
