Lancaster railway station is the fifth worst station in the country for train delays, according to new figures.

IT company RDF Group’s new website analyses train movements and has identified the worst stations in the country for delays.

Lancaster came in at fifth with an average delay of 24 minutes per train, and 279 late trains per day.

It followed Oxenholme in fourth, with average delays of 26 minutes per train, Lockerbie in third, Penrith in second and Heyford in Oxfordshire in first.

“The current weather of storms, high winds and floods are without doubt having a significant effect,” the company said.

RDF Head of IT James Greenwood said: “We used Big Data technology to help visualise train delay data in an informative way. The results show that train delays are a significant problem.”
