Hundreds of thousands of commuters could be affected by strikes as action over driver-only trains spreads to northern rail networks.
Train guard to appeal sentence
Christopher McGee was jailed for 5 years in November, for the manslaughter by gross negligence of Georgia Varley.
The 16 year old from Moreton died after she fell between a train and the platform at Liverpool's James Street Station in October 2011.
During a trial at Liverpool Crown Court it was heard that the guard with 20 years experience, gave the signal for the driver to start the train even though Georgia, who was intoxicated, was leaning against the train. As the train moved she lost her balance and slipped underneath it.
The Court of Appeal have confirmed to Heart that they have received appeal paper from McGee, but a date has not yet been set for the hearing.
