Commuters are facing disruption after heavy rain flooded train lines and a motorway in northern England.
Northern said several rail routes were suspended or amended and it had “no estimate as to when services will return to normal”.
The northbound carriageway of the M66 has been reopened after a section of the motorway was shut when the River Irwell burst its banks near Ramsbottom.
Tram services in Manchester city centre have resumed after earlier disruption.
Northern said it “strongly advised” customers not to travel on affected routes today and advised people to check details online or at local stations.
The routes affected include:
- Newcastle – Carlisle
- Darlington – Bishop Auckland
- Skipton – Carlisle/Lancaster
- Todmorden – Manchester Victoria
- Manchester Victoria – Stalybridge
- Eccles – Newton-Le-Willows
The Environment Agency has issued flood warnings for about 38 locations, mainly across northern England but also along the banks of the River Severn.
