Rail passengers face further disruption after Northern announced more than 170 services will be cancelled on Sunday.

The train operator said it is "likely" more services will be scrapped, with Cheshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester fairing the worst, and Yorkshire also affected.

A spokesman said "many Northern staff have made themselves unavailable for work" on Sunday.

The World Cup final takes place on Sunday afternoon, though England will not feature after they lost their semi-final to Croatia earlier in the week.
