Passengers are being advised to check before they travel this bank holiday as further investment in the railway means some services and routes will be affected.

Network Rail will be carrying investment, upgrade and maintenance work from the last trains on Friday, May 1, until the start of service on Tuesday, May 5, to provide a better, more reliable railway.

The West Coast main line between London Euston and Scotland which passes through Lancaster, is one of the busiest in the country and will see a range of work taking place to help improve performance and reliability.

Work will be taking place from Carlisle in the north of England, to Wolverhampton and Stafford in the Midlands, and Tring and Weedon in the south.
