Vandals strike again – police hunting for culprits

July 12, 2010

Sad to say the station continues to be subject to mindless vandalism and graffiti. One of our Salford In Bloom planters is the latest casualty – stupidly set on fire.

Beside the obvious loss of a pleasant feature from the station, the arsonists took a huge risk starting a fire so close to the wooden fence and expanse of dry grass beyond.

British Transport Police are investigating the arson with the help of several other agencies.

This latest incident reinforces FOWS’ view that the station needs CCTV protection for the benefit of passengers, staff and property. Hundreds of pounds have been spent this year alone making good damaged and stolen property, and passengers tell us how much safer they would feel if CCTV cameras covered the station.

Come on Northern/GMPTE – we’re doing our bit to try and improve the station, but it needs CCTV protection !
