The Unite union said 900 drivers employed by First South Yorkshire are due to stage two 24-hour walkouts on 27 July and 3 August.

It's after talks aimed at resolving a pay dispute broke down.

"We’re extremely disappointed that we have been unable to agree a way forward to avoid strike action", First South Yorkshire's managing director Garry Birmingham said.

“Over the next few days we will be working hard to finalise our contingency plans and establish what level of service we will be able to provide for our customers.”
