Folks I speak to want Merseyrail to retain guards on trains to aid safety. Women in particular are concerned about their removal. It seems many outside of the RMT union will be backing their campaign to keep the guards.

The big decision will be the one made by the Liverpool City Region and its Merseytravel Committee as they will specify whether the guards will stay or go.
