Sutton In The News - 124 Years Ago This Week:
'TO THE EDITORS OF THE LIVERPOOL MERCURY.'
 Gentlemen, Allow me to expose the wretched train service of the London and North-western Railway Company between Warrington and St. Helens. As a frequent traveller between Warrington and Sutton Oak (81/2 miles), I have never yet covered the distance under 40 minutes, and very seldom that. Twice within a month has the 7 18 p.m. train from Warrington been very late, arriving at St. Helens Junction at eight o’clock and five minutes past, only to find the St. Helens train had gone, so I have had to walk nearly a mile, or else wait for the next train. - PUNCTUALITY

Sutton In The News - 49 Years Ago This Week:
'MORE MINERS STAY DOWN - From Our Correspondent, St. Helens'
 Nine miners were tonight defying the Coal Board by continuing their "stay-down" strike more than 2,000ft. below ground at Clock Face colliery, St. Helens. The dispute spread throughout the day and by tonight only 30 coalface workers were on duty and more than 180 were on unofficial strike in support of the nine men. The cause of the dispute is still in doubt. Several of the miners on strike today said that it was a protest against a National Coal Board plan to close the colliery over a period of eight months, although a vast amount of coal was still available. Other mines and N.U.M. officials said the men were protesting against the prolonged closure and the notices served on 200 miners which expire this weekend.
