Have your say

A huge electrical transformer, destined for Penwortham power station, had to be transported up the River Ribble with a tug boat and barge.

Members of public watched in awe as the boat, carrying the giant piece of equipment, made its journey towards the town. 
Some gathered at the end of Naze Lane in Freckleton, near Preston, to watch the slow journey. 
The vessel also made an appearance at Preston Docks.
