WE’RE a city which is going places – that was the message at the official opening of Leeds’s newest railway station.

Trains have been calling at Kirkstall Forge station since last Sunday, June 19, but yesterday marked the site’s formal unveiling.

Present for the occasion were Pudsey MP Stuart Andrew, Leeds City Council leader Coun Judith Blake and Jon Kenny from developer CEG.
