Northern leaders are calling on the government to fix a rail "bottleneck" in Manchester causing delays to the "whole of the north of England".
Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham told a Transport for the North board meeting promised upgrades to Manchester stations were "absolutely essential"
Rail Minister Chris Heaton-Harris said the government was "working hard" on improving services.
He added a decision on rail operator Northern would be made "very soon".
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
