Noise warning
I often used the Hatchet’s Lane pedestrian level crossing to get across the East Coast rail line to the riverside, and then into town (Dicing With Death, Advertiser, August 27).

While this was convenient for me, it was also alarming to see the frequent disregard shown by other users to the warning lights.

Because of careless pedestrians, train drivers routinely sounded their warning horns on approaching the crossing, adding considerably to the noise nuisance for nearby residents.

Noting the crossing closure, and hoping to make the best of the situation, I contacted Network Rail to ask that they inform the train operating companies that audible warnings were no longer needed, there being no possibility of pedestrians crossing.

Ales vie for votes
AN ELECTION with a difference will see a Newark favourite represented at the House of Commons. Never mind last year’s high profile by-election and the General Election of three months ago, this time it’s tasty tipples that will be vying for votes.

A real ale brewed by one of six established micro-breweries in this area will be sold in the Strangers’ Bar at Westminster throughout October.

Six Newark pubs will each feature two beers from their adopted brewery for a week from tomorrow.

Discerning drinkers will be invited to cast their votes for the beer they think best represents Newark and its brewing heritage.
