LETTER: Firefighters struggle to reach Laneshaw Bridge School

Share this article

I READ the report in the Colne Times dated February 18th entitled “Fire Drama” which reported two fire engines attended Laneshaw Bridge School due to a suspected electrical fault.

What was omitted, however, or maybe no one thought to inform you, was the fact that, due to traffic congestion in Emmott Lane, firefighters from the second engine had to walk up the lane. Eventually though, the second engine did arrive at the school. Thank goodness it wasn’t a lot more serious and lives were not at risk.
