A group of Yorkshire MPs say they expect to see major improvements to TransPennine Express rail services from today.

Rail commuters in the north of England were hit by cancellations and delays when new winter timetables were launched last week.

Conservative MPs Kevin Hollinrake (Thirsk and Malton), Robert Goodwill (Scarborough and Whitby) and Jason McCartney (Colne Valley) say they demanded urgent changes when they met TransPennine boss Leo Goodwin.

Mr Goodwin said he was "really sorry" for the disruption to customers at such a busy time of year.

He said: "Due to issues with crew training, caused by the late delivery of some of our new trains, along with a maintenance backlog and some infrastructure issues, we had to implement a temporary timetable."

Mr Goodwin says the introduction of new trains should see an improvement to people’s journeys.

Kevin Hollinrake MP says: "We've seen one-in-five trains cancelled or significantly late, so we've said we must see a tangible improvement .

"What they've agreed to do is reduce that by 50% by January."

Defeated Labour MP John Grogan set to 'reflect'

Four Labour seats were taken by the Tories in West Yorkshire last night, in Wakefield, Colne Valley, Dewsbury and Keighley, where it was a narrow defeat for John Grogan.

Speaking after the result, he said: "I’ll reflect and think about what to do next but I still want to play a part in Yorkshire politics, and also in the future direction of the Labour party."

Colne Valley: Conservative gain

Jason McCartney has been elected as the MP for Colne Valley, beating Labour's Thelma Walker by 5,103 votes.

The Conservative Party overturned a 915 vote majority to take the formerly Labour-held seat.

Cahal Burke of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Brexit Party's Sue Harrison came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 0.8 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 61,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Five of the eight candidates lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
