MP brands Lakes Line suspension ‘disgraceful’
Commenting on the news this afternoon that Northern are suspending train services on the Lakes Line for at least the next two weeks, South Lakes MP Tim Farron said:
"This is disgraceful - Northern have simply given up. If they can't run the service, then it should be turned over to someone who can.
"I've secured an urgent meeting with the rail minister Jo Johnson for Monday. It's simply not on for there to be no trains for two weeks - if not longer.
"The hundreds of people who rely on the line to get to school and work and the thousands of tourists who use it to get to a World Heritage Site deserve better."
