JEREMY Corbyn and Mick Lynch show picket line solidarity on the final day of January’s rail strikes.

The former Labour Party leader and RMT leader stood side-by-side at Euston station in central London.

Despite the RMT ending the second of two 48-hour walkouts yesterday, rail disruption is expected to continue today.
