UK unions called a halt to planned industrial action as the death of Queen Elizabeth II plunged Britain into a period of mourning.

Around 115,000 Royal Mail Plc staff ended a two day strike that had been due to continue through Friday, while three rail unions that had called walkouts for the end of next week said they’ll no longer take place and dockers suspended action on the day of the state funeral.
