All the days over Christmas when there are train, Royal Mail, ambulance and NHS strikes

Staff from key industries are striking on multiple dates across December and early January, meaning many Christmas services will be cancelled or massively reduced.

Here are all the strikes happening across December and early January in Essex, London and nearby areas.
