A rail union has apologised for possible disruption to services, but says it has no choice. Train managers on London Midland, which runs services to Crewe and Liverpool Lime Street, have launched a strike in a row over hours, lasting until 10 pm tomorrow. More action may be in the offing.
"We would like to apologise to passengers who may well find their services delayed and even cancelled but we have been forced to take this action to get management to listen to us seriously."
