Cleethorpes business owners fear loss of train line

Business owners have expressed fears over proposals to scrap the direct express train line between Cleethorpes and Manchester.

The Department for Transport has begun a consultation on the Northern and TransPennine franchises, as ministers consider how best to use £1 billion of investment across the network.

But as Martin Fisher reports, many in the resort fear the worst:

Cleethorpes could be 'cut off' by loss of train line

The government is examining the possibility of terminating the TransPennine Express service from Manchester to Cleethorpes.

But local politicians say this would leave the area cut off from the rest of the country.

The government says many passengers from North East Lincolnshire do not travel all the way to Manchester on the TransPennine Express service, but get off at Doncaster to change trains.

This is one of the reasons why the Department For Transport is looking at scrapping the direct express service.
