New lounge is first class

A FIRST Class experience is now available for travellers waiting to board trains at Sheffield station.

It offers first class passengers free refreshments, newspapers and wireless internet. Other improvements - part of a 10million upgrade programme - include refurbishing standard class waiting rooms and toilets and better CCTV.

He went on the Master Cutler to London to promote the Global Manufacturing Festival, in Sheffield in March.
