來自巴斯的Nicola Bunting說，她去蘇格蘭聖安德魯斯看兒子畢業的火車被取消後，她感到 "很失望"。
Nicola Bunting from Bath said she is "disappointed" after her train to St Andrews, Scotland, to see her son graduate was cancelled.
Ms Bunting said her son's university graduation had been cancelled for the past two years due to Covid, and had been rescheduled for next week.
"We had booked the sleeper train from London to Edinburgh as a treat to celebrate the special occasion, but this was cancelled due to the strike," she said
She then booked flights to Scotland but these were cancelled. After rebooking flights, Ms Bunting said she now faces the stress of trying to get to Gatwick Airport without any trains running.
"I am so disappointed by the total disruption, stress and significant added expense caused to my family at what should be such a special time, especially one that has already been postponed twice due to Covid."
Nicola said she has no sympathy with rail workers who are striking over their pay and pensions.
"I think it's super selfish of them. People need the rail to go about their essential business. It just seems like they're holding the country to ransom, really," she added.
South Western Railway's managing director Claire Mann said: "I am sorry these strikes will cause such disruption and am grateful to our customers for their patience and understanding as the rail industry works to bring this damaging nationwide action to an end."
