Travel chaos is well and truly underway as strikes (and over-running engineering works) cause more turmoil for Southern commuters.

And passengers have been doing what any good Brit would do – taking to social media to complain.

Strikes might be disruptive, but they do provide ample opportunity to take part in one of the national pastimes: queuing

But what use is suffering travel delays if you don’t get to document every moment?

Others made sure to capture the novelty of the rare sight of a train arriving

Those suffering travel disruptions demonstrated that famous stiff upper lip

It wouldn't be a very British strike without a healthy dose of sarcasm either

... some, at least, managed to find their sense of humour in this dark, dark time.


Ultimately, it wouldn’t be Britain at all without people getting on as normal and waiting patiently for trains that may never arrive...
