Northern customers travelling to and from Liverpool and being urged to check before they travel on Sunday 27 May.

Sharon Keith, Regional Director for Northern, said: “On Sunday 27 May we will be running an amended timetable with fewer services than normal in and out of Liverpool City Region.

Northern services operating between Wigan North Western - Liverpool Lime St and Manchester - Liverpool Lime St via Warrington Central will be significantly reduced.

Throughout Sunday we will have buses in operation to supplement the reduced rail services we are able to run. We are urging customers to check before they leave to catch any trains, to check they are still running.

We want customers to be aware that services are likely to be very limited, very busy and to plan any journeys carefully, and to consider all transport options before they set out.”
