Two face court over Masbrough railway cable thefts

Two Rotherham men are due to appear at Sheffield Crown Court this week to be sentenced for stealing railway cable.

Wayne Mark Kershaw, (30), from Bethel Road, Rotherham, and Peter Manion, (30) from Grosvenor Road, Rotherham, pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to the theft of 150 yards of live railway cable from a line side location near Masborough railway station in the early hours of January 12.

The theft caused 127 trains to be cancelled and delays totaling over 20 hours to travelling passengers.

They are due to appear at court on Thursday for sentencing.
