Train companies apologise for days of delays

Rail companies across the country, including Northern, have apologised to customers after days of delays caudsed by the introduction of new timetables.

David Brown, Managing Director, Northern said: “We are doing everything we can to minimise cancellations and keep customers informed. It has been extremely difficult for many of our customers, in particular on a number of routes around north Manchester, Liverpool, and Blackpool extending up to Cumbria, and we are truly sorry for this.

“We‘ve agreed a number of actions with the Department for Transport and are urgently working with them on a comprehensive plan to stabilise our services. “Such a plan is likely to take a number of weeks to deliver lasting improvements, but we recognise our customers deserve better and that’s what we’re focused on.”

Oh deer!

This deer found itself in a tight spot on Bank Holiday Monday and had to be freed by the RSPCA.

RSPCA inspector Kristy Ludlam was called to the spot behind an apartment block. She said: “This poor deer obviously thought he could get through the railings and down into the nearby woodland, but he was wrong.

“When I arrived I found the roe deer stuck in the metal rails, with the front half of his body through, but it was his hips that had got caught and he just wasn’t able to free himself. He really needed some help.

“First the crew tried to stretch the metal bars to see if the deer could wriggle free, but his hips were still too wide, so they then had to cut the railings whilst I gently lifted the deer’s hips and before we knew it, he was free and quickly ran off back into the woodland.”
