Train drivers walk out over pay
Midland Mainline Train
The union has not ruled out strikes
Midland Mainline has apologised for a day of disruption which saw services cancelled between the East Midlands and London.

The company's 198 drivers held a meeting on Sunday to discuss its ongoing pay dispute.

At the meeting, drivers decided to reopen talks with Midland Mainline on Tuesday.

The union is confident it can negotiate a two-year deal, but would not rule out future industrial action.

Throughout Sunday, passengers arriving at Nottingham and Leicester faced a long journey to Grantham or Peterborough if they wanted to get to London.

Those at Derby were forced to travel via Birmingham.
