Looks like just a young lass climbing over the wall

I've seen it a couple of times with sometimes 2/3 people going over since the barriers have been installed

I talk to a guy who works at the station and he told me it's to save paying their fare to Thatto Heath or Whiston.

Disgusting behaviour. The sort of thing we did as kids but to see adults doing it is depressing

Climbing that wall will only take you into the car park. Not onto the platform.

Robbob, you might be close to the truth about getting your leg over at Shaw street , I once heard that there was a brothel " massage parlour" in the arches under that bridge.

It was in a small building on the waste land past the arches.

It was a cock up cos Northern Rail who subsidised it messed up clients timetable for the girls.

As a result the poor girls didn't know when clients  were coming or going.

I do remember before joining this site and i  hadn't bothered about carrying a camera that walking over the bridge just next to the Union pub that i heard a kerfuffle echoing below.

I stopped looking over the bridge below and spotted a guy slapping this woman over his car bonnet.There was other girls trying to stop it,she was screaming.It was the massage parlour but i don't know how it started.It was awful.

He was a big bugger though and obviously a bully.

Yeah Dig,he looked like it.

 

I shouldn't really put this on but you know what i'm like and please excuse the swearing.

Taken last night (Saturday) i just happened to look over the bridge and spotted this guy which i thought he was having a number 2.

Taken on my mobile phone,i pinched in to zoom.

I still cant make out what he was doing,can you?

 

I sound like a robot at the end :borg:
