From Monday, travellers across London can expect severe disruption in bus services, as drivers employed by Arriva have confirmed strike action for several days. 

The strikes come over drivers' "pathetic" pay offer by Arriva with the first 24-hour strike set to place on March 28.

However, if there is a breakthrough during talks, then there is the potential for strikes to be called and for regular service to take place. 

More than 1,000 drivers that are members of Unite will be striking at four London bus depots which operate across South and Central London.

Those depots are Brixton, Croydon, Norwood and Thornton Heath.
