Encountered not one but two checks yesterday on a bit of a tram bash. 10 Metrolink staff plus 2 or 3 police officers at Milnrow late lunchtime, but on the opposite platform. A mere 7 Metrolink staff with no police in attendance at Sale Water Park an hour or so later - I got off, did some birdwatching there, came back and an hour and a half later they were still there. Clearly this is a nice rural location in which to while away an afternoon checking tickets! Nice to see where the money's going.
