Railway line between Liverpool and Manchester closed by fire

  • 7-28-2011

The railway line between Liverpool and Manchester has been closed overnight because of a fire, police have said.

A fire was reported at a garage beneath the railway bridge in Marsh House Lane, Warrington, at 17:00 BST.

Reports that the premises might contain cylinders led to a 200m cordon being established and those houses within it being evacuated.

The line is expected to remain closed until Friday morning. Police have asked travellers to seek an alternate route.

A rest centre for people from the evacuated houses has been established at Warrington Rugby Club.
