Strike hits rugby fi­nal

The People - - NEWS FEATURES -

A RAIL strike put the boot into rugby fans yes­ter­day.

The stop­page hit North­ern ser­vices from Cum­bria to Lin­colnshire.

And Wi­gan War­riors and War­ring­ton Wolves sup­port­ers go­ing to the Old Traf­ford Su­per League Grand Fi­nal found there were no trains home af­ter the match – spon­sored by Ger­man-owned North­ern.

The long-run­ning dis­pute is over the firm’s scrap­ping of train safety guards. RMT plan more strikes in the next six weeks.

Rail pas­sen­gers in Hull were told all ser­vices to Lon­don yes­ter­day were axed – as there were too many bro­ken down trains.
