First Hull Trains cancel services between Hull and London

A shortage of serviceable trains has led to the cancellation of services running between Hull and London.

First Hull Trains have cancelled the 0825 and 1710 BST to the capital, and the 1148 BST train from Kings Cross to Hull on Thursday and Friday.

Passengers are advised to report to departure stations for alternative transportation.

The announcement follows the cancellation of trains from Hull to the capital on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The cancellations come after First Hull Trains was ranked joint first in the country for customer satisfaction according to a survey.

The Spring 2011 National Passenger Survey ranked the train operator joint first with Heathrow Express.

Ninety-five per cent of passengers stated they were satisfied with the overall service.
