Mirfield to London train service launched

A new rail service between Mirfield in West Yorkshire and London has started.

Grand Central Railway, which was taken over by Arriva last month, will provide three daily services to the capital during the week, with a choice of two return services.

At the weekend, there will be two southbound services running on Saturday and three on Sunday.

Councillor Pat Sutcliffe from Mirfield Town Council said the news was great and would boost the local community.
