LNER is cancelling services this week.

The firm has announced it has cancelled 16 trains for this week, but warned passengers there could be "other non-planned changes" to the timetable.

A spokesman said: “LNER is making some daily train service reductions due to a shortage of train crew as a result of an increase in the number of our staff self-isolating due to COVID-19.

“The spread of COVID-19 does mean that there will be some planned reductions, and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this causes.”
