TransPennine Express has given the following customer advice: “Engineering work is taking place today in the Huddersfield area which means trains running between Manchester and Leeds are being diverted via Brighouse.

"However, due to a safety inspection of the track in this area, services are currently unable to run between Manchester Piccadilly / Manchester Victoria and Leeds.

"Northern are not running a train service via Brighouse today, however you may use your TransPennine Express ticket on their services via any reasonable route to help with your journey.”
