Cliff rescue

Bridgnorth’s historic railway reopened after the incident in September which saw passengers stranded in a carriage more than 30 foot up a cliff. Stuck for about an hour when the railway suffered an electrical fault, five people were dramatically rescued by the fire crew and lowered down to safety.

During the rescue, a member of the fire service was strapped into a fall arrest system before climbing down to the carriages with first aid equipment and a radio. Remaining fire crew worked to release the carriage brakes and move the passengers back to the station.
