An overhaul of rail fares is to be trialled in the North West to make it easier to buy the cheapest tickets.

Virgin West Coast trains is one of the routes chosen to pilot the scheme which starts in May.

Some fares will be removed if cheaper alternatives exist, and ticket vending machines will be made more user-friendly.
