Trains cancelled as anti-ISIS protesters storm tracks at Manchester Piccadilly Station

Trains cancelled as anti-ISIS protesters storm tracks at Manchester Piccadilly Station”

National Rail said just after 6.30pm: "Police have successfully dealt with the incident outside the station at London Kings Cross and the station has now been reopened".

Manchester Piccadilly railway station has been closed after protesters stormed the railway lines.

The station opened again just before 4pm GMT as the protesters left the premises. "Trains on routes using the station will be terminated short of destination".

It said "major disruption" is expected until 16:30 BST.

Video footage at the scene showed some of the officers brandishing batons as crowds swarmed against them.

A spokesman for Network Rail said: "The station will remain closed until all protesters have been removed".

Witnesses say some passengers were in tears and faced long delays getting out of the station, which is now closed.

It is understood Kurdish activists are protesting Turkish sales of arms to the terror group.

While the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) is viewed by US-backed forces as key in the fight against Isis in the country, the Turkish government considers it a terrorist group.

British Transport Police have also confirmed on Twitter that officers were at the scene. "The global community and the media are not paying enough attention to this issue".
