Howard, from Stokesley, took this pho­to­graph (left) at Grange-over-Sands sta­tion in Oc­to­ber.

“Not con­tent with ad­vis­ing the public not to travel by train and sig­nif­i­cantly re­duc­ing pas­sen­ger ca­pac­ity by so­cial dis­tanc­ing mea­sures, it ap­pears that car park­ing ca­pac­ity at sta­tions is also be­ing re­duced by 50% by the ap­pli­ca­tion of so­cial dis­tanc­ing to cars,” he ob­serves.

“I was not aware that cars could catch COVID-19 if parked next to one another as in any nor­mal car park.

“I have not seen this re­quire­ment at any other car park or heard about it in any of the public in­for­ma­tion pro­nounce­ments.

“Pas­sen­gers park­ing or re­turn­ing to their cars should be able to so­cially dis­tance them­selves with­out the need for fur­ther re­stric­tion or nan­ny­ing by the rail com­pany.

“Per­haps one just has to laugh at this non­sense or oth­er­wise one could cry.”

Stop & Ex­am­ine’s furry friend Felix (the Tran­sPen­nine Ex­press Se­nior Pest Con­troller at Hud­der­s­field sta­tion) and her ap­pren­tice Bolt have been pro­vid­ing valu­able ad­vice.

While out and about on his lat­est All-Line Rover, Paul Bigland took this pho­to­graph at Hud­der­s­field sta­tion, where the coun­cil has “found a new stan­dard of mea­sure­ment for so­cial dis­tanc­ing. Sta­tion cats!”
