Train operator Northern has warned of more strikes in the upcoming days affecting the service across its network.

Northern serves stations in East Lancashire and beyond, including Blackburn, Accrington, Burnley, Preston and Blackpool.

Tomorrow (February 29) passengers are warned there could be short-notice cancellations and should check their service is running before they travel.

This is the same for Saturday, March 2.

On Friday, March 1, there will be no Northern services anywhere on their network, meaning passengers will have to find alternative means to get to their destinations.

A Northern spokesperson said: “Between February 29 – March 2 (during ‘action short of a strike’) we expect some late notice cancellations to services, particularly the first and last services of the day. Please check before travelling, as close to the time as possible.

“[There are] no Northern train services operating on March 1, so there are no strike timetables for these days.

“Journey planners are available for Northern services between February 29 and March 2, but are subject to late notice cancellations.”

Passengers were advance, anytime, or off-peak tickets for Friday, March 1 will be able to use their tickets any time between Thursday, February 29 and Tuesday, March 5, as long as they were bought before February 22.

TransPennine Express and Transport for Wales will also have Northern ticket acceptance in place on Friday, March 1.

The strike is being undertaken by members of the Aslef union, which largely represents train drivers.
