Cumbria Northern Rail passengers advised 'don't travel'

NORTHERN Rail has advised everyone 'not to travel' across the network this evening - as train services between Carnforth and Barrow and onto Millom and the Cumbria coast were affected by gale force winds.

At 8.50pm Northern Rail said on Twitter: "Our current advice for tonight is not to travel."

Earlier Transpennine Express cancelled all trains to Barrow, Windermere, Blackpool North, Edinburgh and Glasgow Central.

National Rail have said speed restrictions will be in place this evening on trains between Carnforth and Barrow and onto Millom and the rest of the Cumbria coast.

As a safety precaution speed restrictions were imposed on the following routes:

  • Carnforth / Barrow-in-Furness and Carlisle (Cumbrian Coast)
  • Lancaster - Windermere
  • Carlisle - Preston
  • Settle - Carlisle
  • Preston - Blackpool North / Blackpool South

Passengers should expect journey times on these routes to be extended by up to 60 minutes.
