Details have been released of a reduced service by rail company Northern ahead of a further strike by the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT).

The strike is set to take place on Wednesday, May 9 and will see trains available from between 7am and 7pm. There will be more than 1,300 trains and around 65 per cent of Northern's normal weekly timetable operating on the day.

Because of this the company has said it expects the trains and any replacement buses to be extremely busy.

On the day Harrogate commuters will be able to catch the earliest train calling at all stops at 7.26am, arriving in Leeds for 8.16am. The latest will depart at 6.42pm and arrive in Leeds for 7.24pm.

For those travelling towards York the earliest train will depart from Harrogate at 7.51am, arriving in York for 8.32am. The latest which calls at all stops arrives at 6.04pm in Harrogate, and in York for 6.46pm.
