From tomorrow (Tuesday), passengers are being told to only travel if absolutely necessary on Thameslink due to the strike by RMT members of Network Rail and other train operators.

The industrial action will take place tomorrow, Thursday and Saturday – and although Thameslink colleagues will not be on strike, the action will severely affect all journeys on Southern, Gatwick Express, Thameslink and Great Northern until Sunday.
