Widespread disruption likely across North West England - Saturday into Sunday (updated 3pm on Saturday)

28 September 2019
Severe weather conditions are impacting on Northern's ability to operate services in the North West.

Delays and short notice cancellations are likely for the rest of Saturday and into Sunday as a band of heavy rain sweeps across the region.

Localised flooding is making some routes unusable - although in some cases the flood waters are subsiding quickly.

Northern customers are advised to allow extra time for travel and to check ahead - up to the last minute - for all rail travel in the North West.

Status at 3pm on Saturday 28 September

The line between Lancaster and Skipton remains closed at Bentham following a mudslip earlier today. It is unlikely the line will be re-opened before Sunday morning.

Speed restrictions are in place on many parts of the network as a precaution.
