Passengers with tickets for cancelled or delayed trains will be able to travel with Avanti West Coast, CrossCountry, East Midlands Railway, LNER, Northern, and ScotRail at no extra cost - as long as they are travelling "via any reasonable route".

TransPennine recommends customers check their journeys before travelling using the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner. Passengers may be entitled to compensation if their journey is delayed.

"Please keep your train ticket and make a note of your journey, as both will be required to support any claim," it said.

Disruption is expected on the TransPennine Express network throughout Wednesday (May 25).
