Northern rail cancels 80 Sunday services | UK news | The Guardian
watch Northern rail has cancelled about 80 services on Sunday and is expecting to have to cancel more after staff “made themselves unavailable to work”.
Liverpool was worst hit, with all 30 direct trains between Liverpool and Manchester airport cancelled. Twenty-nine from Liverpool to Wigan were also cancelled, reducing it to an hourly service. Trains between Blackpool and Colne will run every two hours, and there will be no Blackpool to Carlisle trains.
In a statement on its website, Northern asked customers to plan carefully before travelling, and to check online for cancellations. “Some of our staff have made themselves unavailable for work on Sunday and operational teams are currently working hard to make the best use of available staff and bring others in where possible,” it said.
