Bee Rowlatt, a British mother, is furious. The Englishwoman was on her way from York to London with her children and fell into an overcrowded train: ” No seat anywhere, floors and hallways completely blocked and one of my kids is in the luggage rack. This trip has
costs £182.94 (about 213 euros) ‘ she wrote on Twitter.
Grand Central Rail apologized for the “inconvenience” in a message to Bee on Twitter. But the apologies were not enough for the mother. According to her, the crowds on the train did not ensure the safety of passengers: “ If there were an incident, how would these passengers safely evacuate a car or even the entire train? If someone needed help, how would they have done it? “.
The Briton also receives support from many internet users who find Grand Central Rail’s apologies insufficient. According to them, Bee should be compensated: “ What a beautiful and sincere apology. Very moving ‘ joked one of them. ” I had to check if it was a real account. Which answer remarks another.
As a reminder, the United Kingdom has been hit by numerous strikes by rail workers since the summer. Yesterday a new wave of strikes was announced for the months of December and January.
