Railway staff are an inspiration

All praise to the station staff. Last Thursday (April 18) entering Eastbourne station, I was suddenly overcome by a bout of violent sickness, not, I hasten to add, caused by access alcohol, but by one bad pint consumed 20 hours earlier in Hastings.

Much to my embarrassment I could do nothing but tuck myself into a corner until I recovered.

Recovering some composure, and being determined nobody but myself should clean up the mess, I sought out a member of staff.

Despite numerous requests, this young man flatly refused to hand over his mob and bucket.

His attitude, dedication and willingness to help was admirable. I suspect this would have happened had any other member of staff come to my assistance.

My grateful thanks to you all, ladies and gentlemen, you are an inspiration to others.

ROBERT PEEL,
