A number of trains have been cancelled or delayed on this cold Monday morning after Northern Rail's new timetable caused absolute chaos across the country.
The new winter timetable, which is supposed to have only been 'slightly altered', was rolled out across the UK yesterday but it wasn't long until commuters were taking to twitter to complain.
Almost 40 services were cancelled this morning, according to the Northern Fail app, with a large number of delays also reported.
@northernassist you cancelled the 0802 from hazel grove to Manchester. Then sent 2 carriages as the next service which I couldnt get on. What are you playing at? #northernfail pic.twitter.com/Oq74vrJTDV— Claire P (@clairespag) December 16, 2019
