TWO key rail services out of Bolton Station have been cancelled today.

Trains between Preston and Bolton will be replaced by buses, as will services running from Wigan to Bolton (Via Westhoughton).

It comes as train firm Northern continues to cancel services each Sunday to cope with demand against a lack of drivers.

In a statement on its website, Northern said: "We are sorry for the inconvenience this will cause our customers. Please check immediately before you travel.

"All the planned cancellations will be fully updated on the Northern website or National Rail Enquiries websites and apps overnight, so customers should check on Saturday morning for the latest information.

"Anyone whose journey is delayed by 15 minutes or more can apply for compensation via Delay Repay."
