A protest about the state of the north’s railway network is to take place in Sheffield on Friday.

Members of the RMT union will be outside Sheffield Railway Station to meet with passengers and raise concerns about ageing trains, rising ticket prices and potential job cuts as a result of possible changes for the Northern and Trans-Pennine franchises.

The protest will take place from 2pm to 4pm.

It is one of a number of protests taking place across the north of England at railway stations on Friday.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “RMT activists and our supporters in the community be out in force again across the region this Friday the 13th with a renewal of our fight against the rail franchise carve up.”
