Disabled pensioner Michael Haigh, of Fleetwood, is hoping free tram travel for Wyre pensioners can be restored.

A disabled Fleetwood man says the halt called to free tram travel for Wyre pensioners is having a major effect on people’s lives.

Michael Haigh, 67, of Radcliffe Road, needs regular trips to Blackpool Victoria Hospital and says the tram has always been a vital means of getting to appointments.

Until last month, he was able to travel on it free.
