Merseyrail – Yes staff are right to stop people who are too intoxicated getting on trains

The Liverpool Echo has the story on its web site – see link above

We have probably all been on trains or buses when there’s someone nearby who has had a little to much of the falling down water. Most of the time they are harmless but some are far from that.

I applaud Merseyrail for trying to identify those who are simply not fit to travel because they are a danger to themselves and everyone else on the train. The fact that in this story a drunk got violent, sadly injuring Merseyrail staff, kind of makes my point i.e. he was obviously unfit to travel. Clearly he needs tracking down and charging with assault, maybe that will sober him up!

As an aside I once got a train back from Liverpool to Maghull late in an evening and had a happy drunk sat not so far away from me. He entertained us all by trying to eat chips when he could not easily work out where his mouth was nor could be stay awake between the chips that did find his mouth.
