Train stations fall quiet amid second major rail strike

Major railway stations are much quieter than normal as services were crippled by thousands of railway workers staging their second strike of the week. Edinburgh Waverley, London Euston, London Paddington and Liverpool Lime Street are among the stations with much fewer passengers than a typical weekday. Broadband provider Virgin Media O2 said it recorded an increase in usage of up to 10% on the first day of the strikes on Tuesday, indicating that “millions more people are working from home” this week.
