Coronavirus: Train services to be cut amid falling demand [BBC News]





Date: 20/03/2020

Trains operators across Britain will gradually reduce services from Monday, amid falling demand because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The government said it had agreed the plan with the rail industry to reflect the fall in passenger numbers, while keeping vital services running.
Operators will still run core services to ensure key workers can get to their jobs and the flow of goods continues.
It comes after the PM said people should avoid 'non-essential' travel.
Train operators across the country had already begun cancelling services because of staff being off sick or self-isolating and a collapse in demand.
