Industrial action by the RMT union on Saturday (29 July) is set to disrupt thousands of Northern customers this weekend.

RMT members will bring all but a handful of Northern services across the North of England to a halt.

Due to the impact strikes have on fleet displacement, early morning services on Sunday (30 July) are also expected to be disrupted.
