BRITISH Transport Police (BTP) officers are using mobile CCTV units at Crewe Station as part of a package of measures to reassure passengers worried in the wake of the Madrid bombings.
The Chronicle revealed in last week's edition that Virgin Trains, which leases the station from Network Rail, has not installed a CCTV system, which would cost an estimated £350,000.
BTP North West area commander, Chief Superintendent Martyn Ripley, has asked the Chronicle to point out he did not state that Crewe Station has been identified as a major terrorism target in the North West, as reported in the story.
He said: 'There is no evidence to suggest that Crewe has been identified as a major terrorist target.
'After the Madrid bombings we are experiencing extra vigilance from the public who, helpfully, are increasingly drawing our attention to unattended luggage and matters of intelligence.
'We have mobile CCTV police units which have been deployed and this includes at Crewe, and officers are travelling in plain clothes.
'This is all to reassure the public, who themselves can provide five million extra eyes and ears to be vigilant.
'If anyone sees unattended luggage or anything they think is suspicious they can report it to us.'
British Transport Police officers are on 0800 405040.
