ASLEF and RMT strikes are expected to cause disruptions across rail services this weekend.

Rail services across the country are set to face disruptions this weekend as thousands of workers go on strike. The action is expected to impact a number of train operators tomorrow (May 12) and Saturday (May 13).

Friday will see workers across the Associated Society of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen (ASLEF) union strike. Saturday will have further action from members of The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers union. 

The forthcoming union strikes were confirmed to be taking place late last month. On April 27, both ASLEF and RMT announced they had planned action for this week.

Saturday's RMT strike falls on the same day as the Eurovision Song Contest. The Grand Final of the show will be hosted in Liverpool Arena, which aims to welcome thousands of fans from across Europe.

We break down what train operators are expected to be affected over the upcoming two strike days.
