BOROUGH revellers can let the train take the strain.

The popular Saturday only 22.45 hour Northern Rail departure from Manchester Victoria to Wigan via Atherton is now being extended to run Monday to Friday as from Monday, December 10.

This decision is being described as a victory for the Atherton Campaign Group supported by the Independent councillors who have been calling on train chiefs to make the change for the past three years.

Other evening departures from Victoria have been revised to 19.25, 20.25 , 21.25 then 22.45, the last train still 23.20.
