The comment came at a time when rail workers are taking strike action throughout the day and tomorrow.

Sharon Keith, regional director at Northern, commented: “We want to remind customers that we will operate a very limited service from 0900 to 1700 on Sunday.

“Our coastal routes were very busy on Saturday and there are fewer trains on Sunday.
