Northern have apologised for disruption and cancellations to rail services since it's new timetable was introduced.

Changes coming in today will see six per cent of services removed until the end of July.

Craig Johnston who represents the RMT union in our area says the Transport Minister should remove the train operating companies franchise or step down as it's failing the North of England.

In a statement Chris Grayling told us although it's a huge inconvenience to passengers they're investing in the biggest modernisation of the railway since Victorian Times.
