Strike hits rugby final
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.
