The Duke of Sussex has accused his family of showing no willingness to reconcile, saying: “I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back.”

Prince Harry said: “It never needed to be this way, the leaking and the planting. I want a family, not an institution.”

Tens of thousands of workers have gone on strike in a fresh round of walkouts that will bring a week of disruption. We have live coverage – and analysis of new interviews by Prince Harry, above.

Duke claims family unwilling to reconcile with him

Further anguish is set to be heaped on the Royal family, which is already braced for the release of the Duke of Sussex’s memoir. In trailers for two new interviews to promote his book, Prince Harry has said he wants to reunite with the King and the Prince of Wales – but claimed that they are unwilling to reconcile with him. He accuses Buckingham Palace of “betrayal” for failing to defend him and his wife. Watch clips of the interviews. The full programmes will be broadcast on Sunday – two days ahead of the publication of Spare, in which the Duke is expected to be particularly critical of his brother, Prince William. In her analysis, royal correspondent Victoria Ward says it is not the first time the Sussexes have used ITV News at Ten anchor Tom Bradby to air their grievances.

Five days of misery in most disruptive rail strikes yet

It is a new year, but there is no end to the dispute crippling Britain’s railways. The UK faces the most disruptive train strikes yet this week, with five consecutive days of disruption set to leave passengers reliant on the rail network stranded. Commuters are braced for chaos with RMT rail workers staging two 48-hour walkouts today, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday – coupled with another strike on Thursday by train drivers in the Aslef union. Network Rail has told people to “only travel if absolutely necessary” until Sunday, with rail firms advising commuters to work from home and expect significant delays. The five-day walkout marks another escalation in the increasingly bitter dispute between the unions and the Government over pay, with some 80,000 services due to be axed. These are the full details of strike action in the diary for January. Follow live updates, amid warnings from City bosses that strikes will encourage more employees to work from home permanently.

Meanwhile, a wave of train operators are being targeted for nationalisation – stoking fears about the dominance of the state across the strike-ridden rail network. Government officials are being accused of “delusions of grandeur” and “empire building” by train executives, who claim that the state is throttling private sector involvement in the railways. Bosses of the Operator of Last Resort, a public sector body that took control of two railways, say it is now the public sector-owning group. As chief business correspondent Oliver Gill reports, that has prompted a backlash from private sector train operators.

How to stop wasting time at work with a diary detox

Experts on smarter working give Ed Cumming their top tips for achieving more – and stressing less.

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world. We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
