NEW rail services have been provided at Alnmouth following lobbying by the Alnmouth Rail User Group (ARUG).

There is now an extra service on weekdays from Newcastle, and stations further south, arriving back at Alnmouth at 8.34pm.

There are also two further southbound services on a Saturday at 9.08am and 12.58pm.

Murray Davies, chairman of ARUG, staid: “It is good to see further improvements in the service at Alnmouth.

“The train operating companies have taken on board the majority of our feedback, though there is still scope for further improvements.”
