Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham calls for government action after Avanti West Coast cuts rail services

The Mayor of Greater Manchester has called on the government to intervene to ensure improvements for passengers of Avanti West Coast.

Andy Burnham said the company was delivering a “threadbare service” despite getting millions of pounds to operate trains between cities on the West Coast mainline.

His criticism came after last night’s resignation of Avanti’s Managing Director.
