Remember the snow of February 1994? Well you can relive it via this You Tube video of Merseyrail’s Northern Line to Southport during that bad weather – see link below:-
The video starts of at Chester but soon goes on to Southport after about 1m 30sec’s.

There’s every danger with looking at crime stats and trying to interpret them that folk become more fearful of crime than they need to be. But the positive side of talking about railway stations where crime is an issue is to make travellers more aware of what is going on around them on busy stations. It’s a question of balance as with most things of course.
