There will be no East Midlands Railway (EMR) services on Wednesday and Friday next week due to rail strikes.

EMR, which runs services through Alfreton, has said it will not be able to operate any trains on Wednesday, February 1 or Friday, February 3 due to industrial action being taken by members of the ASLEF union and train drivers with the RMT union.

EMR services on days surrounding the strike action are not expected to be affected.

Will Rogers, managing director at EMR, said: “As a result of strike action being taken by members of the ASLEF union and the RMT union we are not able to run any services on Wednesday, February 1 and Friday, February 3.

“Customers with an Advance, Off-peak or Anytime ticket who are affected by the strike can use their ticket either on the day before the date on the ticket, or up to and including Tuesday, February 7. Customers can also travel on an alternate date or get a refund. More details on our website.”
