If you're catching a train from Newark Northgate, there's nearly a 50% chance it will be late, according to a newly-developed online punctuality service.

Staff and rota management software company RotaCloud has created a new tool to establish which train stations have the best, and worst, record for the punctuality of trains.

The company gathered data for all 2,566 of Britain’s railway stations from January 2019 to January 2020, and created the Lateness Checker for commuters to check the punctuality of their trains.
