Rail operator Northern has cancelled its ‘do not travel’ notice after rail strikes next week were cancelled in the wake of the death of the Queen.

The RMT and ASLEF unions have called off their industrial action on Thursday, September 15, and Saturday 17, following the passing of Her Majesty on Thursday, aged 96.

Northern had issued a do not travel notice earlier this week, with no trains running on Thursday and a skeleton service on the Saturday, only serving parts of West Yorkshire and between Liverpool and Manchester Airport.

However, in light of the Queen’s death, the unions have called off their industrial action.

As a result, Northern has said its full service will be running on those days, meaning East Lancashire will get its Northern services as normal.
