Have your say

Blackpool is set to get its direct rail link to London back following a successful Gazette campaign.

Virgin Trains today received the green light from the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) to run direct services from both Blackpool North to London Euston.

The new service will commence on December 15, and will also call at Poulton, as well as Kirkham and Wesham.
