Manchester Piccadilly station closed after protesters storm tracks

Manchester Piccadilly train station closed by protest

The protest began at around 1.30pm but National Rail have said services are likely to be delayed until at least half four this afternoon.

The demonstration in London comes hours after a similar protest forced the closure of Manchester Piccadilly railway station.

Protesters had gathered on the tracks and were "attempting to climb overhead line equipment", it added in a post on Twitter.

The action, which saw scores of flag-waving protesters make it onto the tracks, is thought to be in opposition to Turkey's war with Syrian Kurds.

"However, as some train services have been revised and diverted, trains to and from London Kings Cross may still be delayed or revised as the service recovers".

British Transport Police are at the scene.

The trespass incident at Manchester Piccadilly has ended allowing all lines through the station to be reopened.

Rail bosses warned of "major disruption" caused by the activists, who say they are protesting against Turkey's "support for ISIS".

The government in Ankara has accused the YPG of supporting another armed Kurdish organisation, the PKK (the Kurdistan Workers' Party), which is considered a terrorist group by NATO. "Trains on routes using the station will be terminated short of destination".

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has urged North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to come to Turkey's aid, saying its borders are "under threat right now".
