Strikes hit commuters and ITV viewers

An outbreak of industrial action by train guards and broadcasting workers will hit rail services and ITV today.
Up to 700 ITV staff will stage a 36-hour strike from 7am in a row over pay which unions said will disrupt recording of top programmes including Coronation Street and Emmerdale.

Bectu and Amicus said filming of Heartbeat will be cancelled for a day, Emmerdale will be filmed in just one location and there will be delays in filming schedules of Coronation Street, while Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway will be pre-recorded rather than being broadcast live.
