Northern are to install 612 new cameras across its network. Alongside the new additions, Northern will also be updating a total of 1,094 CCTV cameras which are currently in use, all to provide passengers with even safer journeys.

“The safety of our customers and colleagues is paramount and we are doing all we can to provide them with the safest possible environment,” Tricia Williams, Chief Operating Officer at Northern, said. “CCTV helps discourage anti-social and criminal behaviour and, when problematic behaviour persists, can be crucial in providing evidence to the police that enables offenders to be brought to justice.”
