COMMUTERS are facing delays after a train crash at a Wigan station.

Rail maintenance workers escaped the collision by seconds as a goods train crashed into two cherry pickers at Bryn station.

Passengers on trains between Liverpool Lime Street and Wigan North Western will be delayed due to Bryn now being closed until further notice.

Trains can run between Liverpool and St Helens Central, with replacement buses between St Helens Central and Wigan. This is extending journey times by up to 20 minutes with disruption expected until around 17:00.
