REGARDING the article about Bolton Train Station lift featured on page 4 of the Bolton News dated 5th June.

I travelled to York on the morning of Saturday, 25th May and the lift was out of order then.

A lady travelling with a pram and a young child in tow was kindly offered a lift to carry her pram up the steps by another passenger, not a very safe manoeuvre.

I returned from York on Monday afternoon 27th May and the lift was still out of order.

So has it been out of order for over a week and not the ‘few days’ quoted by a Northern Rail spokesman? Totally unacceptable.
