Fleetwood fan sees football for first time in 27 years

A severely sight impaired football fan has been able to see his team score for the first time in nearly three decades, thanks to a special pair of glasses.

Brian Casey is the first person in Europe to test the technology, which allowed him to watch his club, Fleetwood Town, take on Preston.

Chris Hall was with him.

East Lancashire Railway will be observing its 30th anniversary. Passenger services were suspended in the 70s, but the East Lancashire Railway Trust re-opened it in 1987.

There'll be a special private service from Bury's Bolton Street Station to Ramsbottom to celebrate.
