Regional director at Northern, Tony Baxter, said: “We know the bank holiday provides a great opportunity for people to get out, explore, and enjoy all that the North of England has to offer.

“We’re doing all we can to prepare for the weekend and are also asking our customers to plan ahead, expect services to be busy, allow extra time for journeys and, where possible, to avoid travelling during the busiest times.”
