Theresa May told to 'get a grip' on rail crisis by regional news titles
Papers such as Liverpool Echo and Yorkshire Post express readers’ fury at service failure
Theresa May is coming under pressure over the rail chaos in northern England as some of the area’s largest newspapers join together to demand that she “get a grip” on the government’s response.
The news came after the transport secretary, Chris Grayling, faced calls to resign as he was questioned by MPs and announced an inquiry into the botched timetabling changes that have caused delays and cancellations for hundreds of thousands of people.
