More railway chaos expected as train services hit by fresh wave of strikes

No Northern trains will run on Saturday as part of this week's strikes

Railway services will be hit over the next few days due to a fresh wave of industrial action by train drivers.

There will be no Northern trains on Saturday April 6 and the company says disruption can also be expected today (April 4) and on Friday April 5, Sunday April 7, Monday April 8 and Tuesday April 9.

Northern is advising passengers to check before they travel on these dates as "services may be busier and there may be some short notice amendments".

There will also be 'additional action short of a strike' from April 15 to 20 which may affect services.

Northern runs the service between Morecambe and Lancaster, as well as the route between Manchester and Barrow-in-Furness which goes through Lancaster.

There are currently no services between Lancaster and Barrow anyway, as investigations and repairs continue into a de-railed train on March 22.

Avanti West Coast has announced its trains will not run tomorrow (Friday April 5).

There will also be disruption and amended timetables today (April 4) as well as on April 6, 8 and 9.

Avanti West Coast is also advising passengers to check before they travel.

Transpennine Express services will not be running on Saturday April 6.

An ASLEF spokesperson said: "Train drivers who are members of ASLEF, the train drivers’ trade union, will take part in another programme of rolling one-day strikes, coupled with a six-day overtime ban, as we increase the pressure on 16 intransigent train companies – and the tone-deaf Tory government that stands behind them – to get train drivers, who have now not had a pay rise for five years, since April 2019, the salary increase they deserve."
