Mum calls for early train to be reinstated for schoolgirls

SCHOOLGIRLS are struggling with exhaustion because they have to get up too early to catch a train, say mums.

Pupils travelling from Knutsford arrive at Altrincham an hour before classes start because an earlier service was cancelled during the pandemic.

Mum Amy Hayes has now launched a campaign to get the 8.04am Northern Rail train service reinstated.

She will be handing out flyers on the platform urging commuters to support her appeal.

Her 11-year-old daughter Alice and friends, all former pupils at St Vincent's Catholic Primary School, have to get up at the crack of dawn to catch a train to get to Loreto Grammar on time.
