Woman blocks train doorsWatch
I don't know . Seems mean of the driver. But i don't know. Since the lady knows it's a struggle to get on trains she should have definitely planned to arrive on time. But very weird driver can't have pity on a family with a disabled child. Very rare to see such unsympathetic behaviour
The driver has to depart every station on time ASAP. Any issue should be taken up with his employer in my opinion which would be Greater Anglia.
Are you the driver looking for sympathy online because of shunning a family with a disabled kid?
Lol i bet they'll fire him. Most employers now don't take too kindly to immoral behaviour. Though he has to keep to schedule in this case though there's a good excuse to delay by a few minutes. Very mean of the driver to try to leave instead of just helping this family out. Most companies are governed by ethics and morals pretty sure he would be warned if reported
Such issues and ramifications outweigh the positive impact and benefits of waiting for those passengers to board the train, even for just a few minutes. This applies even with a "good excuse", but nevertheless I doubt that they even had a "good excuse" personally. The driver wasn't even being "mean" in the slightest by departing the station on time and leaving a trespasser on the platform on in my opinion. By the same logic should driver be obliged to transport trespassers that they encounter between stations? Of course not. They have absolutely no right to be there for a start, let alone any right whatsoever to travel by rail.
Greater Anglia are indeed governed by ethics and morals to a certain degree, but even the most ethical and decent TOCs (Train Operating Companies) won't warn a driver for that. He hasn't done anything wrong to start with. Had he attempted to make a citizen's arrest, and then forced her onto the train, before departing Wymondham, whilst leaving her partner and child on the platform, then that would've been a very different matter. Especially given that trespass on a railway is a summary only offence, and not an indictable offence. Even then, the driver would be looking at disciplinary action as his job is to drive the train, not enforce the law. Not to mention the issue of leaving a disabled child on the platform with only one responsible adult, and no step-free access.
