London Assembly grills Southeastern on service disruption

The London Assembly has written to Southeastern to ask them why they were so craven in response to the recent snowfall.

Transport Committee Chair Caroline Pidgeon pointed out that between January 6th-8th, while the troopers at Southern kept calm and carried on, commuters using St Johns and Ladywell were faced with a reduced service and no trains after 8pm. This is in spite of the fact that South East London was relatively unaffected and that on the 9th, a normal service was resumed despite no improvement in the weather. Freight trains ran as normal throughout.

Worse, on January 5th, before a flake had fallen, Southeastern took pre-emptive action, stopping all services early.

We await their response with interest.
