A fresh wave of rail strikes will hit services in Cumbria tomorrow, with more Northern industrial action planned.

Staff are walking out for 24-hours over plans to change the role of train guards.

The majority of available services will run between 7.00am and 7.00pm.

During this time the overall number of trains running will be significantly reduced.

Northern aims to run over 1,200 services on each strike day to minimise disruption to passenger's journeys.

Advice for travellers during strike action:

  • If you experience a delay of 30 minutes or more, you can claim compensation through Northern's Delay Repay scheme.
  • If you are travelling to the Liverpool area your journey could be affected further, because of major works at Liverpool Lime Street.
  • Allow extra time for journeys and plan ahead before you travel.
  • Keep up to date with Northern industrial action
