Train operator TransPennine Express has told passengers only to travel if essential on key routes today (Friday, 23 June).
One of the routes affected is between York and Scarborough.
The company, which was nationalised last month, says “operational issues” are to blame for the latest problems.
The affected routes are:
- Liverpool/Manchester – Newcastle
- Liverpool- Hull
- Manchester Airport- Saltburn
- Manchester- Scarborough
- York- Scarborough
- Manchester- Huddersfield
- Huddersfield- Leeds
- Newcastle- Edinburgh.
TPE says: “Anyone making an essential journey should plan ahead, check very carefully before travelling and allow extra time, as short notice delays and further on-the-day cancellations are possible.
“Customers with tickets for Friday 23 June who chose not to travel can claim a full refund at their point of purchase.
“Alternatively, customers with tickets for travel on Friday 23 June can use their tickets up to and including Monday 26 June.”
TPE interim managing director Chris Jackson said: “Unfortunately, operational issues mean we will be running a reduced number of services on Friday, 23 June.
“We know this is frustrating news for our customers, and we are sorry for the impact it will have on people’s plans. Customers are advised to only travel if absolutely essential.”
