Northern rail disruption continues amid driver shortage
Dozens of trains cancelled on key routes as looming strike threatens to cause more chaos
Delays and cancellations have continued to affect passengers using Northern trains, after the introduction of a new timetable this week.
The train company said a shortage of drivers was disrupting services on Tuesday. Dozens of trains were cancelled, some at short notice. A greater number were curtailed or running significantly late, with routes between Blackpool, Southport, Wigan and Manchester airport again heavily affected.
