Metrolink Attacks

Reported sexual assaults on Metrolink trams and stations in Manchester have increased five-fold over the past five years, new figures have revealed.
A Freedom of Information Request to Greater Manchester Police found the number of assaults rose from five in 2014 to 27 in 2018.
Journeys increased 41% to 42.8 million a year during the same period. Transport for Greater Manchester said most journeys were incident-free but "one sexual assault is one too many". Bev Hughes, deputy mayor of Greater Manchester, said she thought members of the public would be "rightly concerned" about the figures and authorities in the city were taking the rise "very seriously".
