Services hit by cable thiefs again

June 4, 2008

Passengers suffered disruption and delays along the Atherton line again yesterday after cable thieves struck for the second time in 6 weeks. Services were delayed throughout the afternoon and evening, and the Blackpool service had to be re-routed via Bolton, missing out Walkden completely.

Thanks to a speedy repair job by Network Rail services were back to normal this morning.
