ONGOING RMT strike action threatens to result in unusually busy trains this Saturday, passengers are being warned.

Northern services will stop running at 5pm meaning trains run by other operators will be busier than usual.

Passengers are being advised to check before they travel, to plan journeys in advance and to make a note of their last trains home.

Thousands of people are set to be affected across the North and they are being warned to expect disruption if travelling by rail.

Network Rail is working closely with its train operator partners to try to minimise any impact on customers.
