Bridge problems prompt April Fool in Evesham

First published in News

THE lengthy closure of the Abbey Bridge prompted an April Fool's day prank this week.

On Tuesday, April 1, Martin King saw a notification at Evesham Train Station, which said Network Rail was set to build a new out of town station in Offenham Road.

It said this was due to the problems caused by the bridge.

Mr King said: "There was a statement saying people couldn't get to the town station because of the bridge so Network Rail were going to build a new out of town station. It was only when you got to the bottom it said 'got you April fool'.

"It was very good, very clever."
