RMT says spare a thought for transport workers battling to keep Britain moving through the storm.
Rail, maritime and transport union RMT has called on the public to spare a thought for the staff battling to keep Britain moving through the most atrocious conditions today.
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"RMT members on rail and ferries are reporting the most atrocious working conditions today and they are out their battling the elements right at the front line protecting public safety and doing whatever possible to keep services running.
"They are unsung heroes each and every one of them.
"When trees come down, infrastructure is damaged and trampolines are blown onto the tracks it is our members out there using their experience and expertise to get the lines open. I ask the public to spare a thought for that 24 hour army of rail, bus and ferry staff as the storm rips across the country."
