Northern Rail sent ONE bus to Millom to take take two FULL PACKED Train loads of passengers to Sellafield, a second bus arrived 1 hour and 40 mins later, again passengers left behind as this one bus was overfull.! I arrived 2.5 hrs late for work others were 3.5 hours late for work, others have not yet arrived ! NORTHERN TRAINS GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER. its pathetic.
