Merseyside's newest railway station in 20 years has opened to commuters this morning.

Maghull North is on the Ormskirk branch of the Northern Line of Merseyrail.

Rail bosses say the £13m station complex will help with the extra passengers generated by nearby housing developments.

"This is about is providing increased transport links for people.

"Maghull North is ideally placed to get people into and out of Liverpool, and there's good transport links there."
