Northern has warned of cancellations and disruption across its services in Yorkshire tomorrow, telling passengers to not even ‘attempt’ some routes.

The rail operator is warning passengers in South Yorkshire in particular to expect disruption on Sunday July 18.

It is also asking customers ‘not to attempt to travel’ on routes between Leeds and Sheffield via Dearne, Sheffield and York, and Doncaster and Leeds.

Northern was forced to cancel services on routes in and out of Sheffield on Friday after many conductors and drivers were either diagnosed with COVID-19 or asked to self-isolate following Track and Trace notifications.

This afternoon Northern said the situation had gotten worse with bus operatons – who would normally provide replacement transport – facing simlar problems.

Northern regional director Chris Jackson said they were left with ‘no choice’ but to issue the warning.

He said: “ We have already seen cancellations on Saturday and have had to tell customers on some routes not to travel. We had hoped to be able to operate more services on Sunday, but the situation hasn’t improved, and we’ve been left with no choice other than to issue the same warning for Sunday.

“This is not a decision we have taken lightly and, in doing so, we’ve had to balance the demand for services with our realistic ability to provide a reliable and punctual service for our customers.”

Though South Yorkshire is the most seriously affected region, short notice cancellations and amendments to timetables are possible on all routes across the Northern network on Sunday.

Up-to-the-minute details of Northern’s services can be found via the rail operator’s journey planner at or at National Rail Enquires.
