Rail pas­sen­gers face mine­field of rules

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

RAIL pas­sen­gers who make in­no­cent mis­takes with their tick­ets are some­times fac­ing hefty fines, a cus­tomer watch­dog said to­day. Some even face crim­i­nal pros­e­cu­tion af­ter get­ting caught up in a “mine­field of rules and reg­u­la­tions”, ac­cord­ing to a re­port from Pas­sen­ger Fo­cus. Hun­dreds of pas­sen­gers com­plained to Pas­sen­ger Fo­cus about their un­fair treat­ment. Some had for­got­ten their ticket but still faced fines even though they could pro­duce proof of pur­chase. One woman who had her £2 ticket checked on the train still faced an £85 fine when she was un­able to pro­duce it at her des­ti­na­tion sta­tion. * RUS­SELL BRAND has opened up to ELLEN DEGENERES about his split - say­ing he still loves KATY PERRY “as a hu­man be­ing”.

He said: “I still love her as a hu­man be­ing but, some­times, when you’re in a re­la­tion­ship, I sup­pose it “This is like the Blitz - only with­out the sex, of course” - Tory peer Baroness Trump­ing­ton, 89, af­ter a late-night de­bate in the House of Lords. “God!

The Men In Black star made his act­ing de­but as a teenager play­ing tough older brother Brand in the 1985 Spiel­berg-pro­duced film which starred SEAN ASTIN and COREY FELD­MAN. Josh re­vealed: “I talked to Spiel­berg re­cently about do­ing a se­quel to it. It’s been talked about though for 28 years, so I don’t know if it’s ever go­ing to hap­pen.” Sean has pre­vi­ously said he was sure there will one day be a se­quel to the film about trea­sure­seek­ing kids.
