Paula Sherriff MP writes to transport secretary Chris Grayling

Dewsbury MP Paula Sherriff has written to transport secretary Chris Grayling asking whether Transpennine Express customers would be compensated as train misery enters its third week.

Mr Grayling said yesterday that Northern customers would be compensated - but said nothing about TPE customers.

She said:

What a mess. On Chris Grayling’s watch, we’ve seen plans downgraded for an East-West Cross Rail for the North, we’ve had the £2 billion tax payer bailout of Virgin East Coast, we’ve seen Yorkshire hit with the biggest rail fare increase in the country, and now a botched new timetable causing despair for the region.

When they look at this Secretary of State’s blatantly incompetent record, my constituents are left asking: where’s the accountability? Whilst passengers are left waiting and waiting on platforms across the region, surely the buck has to stop somewhere.

Every day that this Transport Secretary remains in post is another day in which passengers’ distrust in him and this government grows deeper and deeper.

Let’s face it, if this level of misery had been forced on other parts of the country, the Prime Minister would have already sacked Mr Grayling long ago.

Attack on Leeds mosque

An investigation has been launched after suspected arson attacks at two popular places of worship in Leeds.

West Yorkshire Police say the main door at Jamia Masjid Abu Huraira Mosque in Hardy Street was deliberately set on fire at around 3.30am on Tuesday, June 5.

At around 4.20am police were then called to Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha Gurdwara, in Lady Pit Lane, after someone set the front door on fire.

Superintendent Joanne Morgan, head of neighbourhood operations in Leeds, has spoken to our sister site LeedsLive about the investigation.

She said: “Clearly people in the communities will be really unnerved and frightened by what’s happened.

“We have increased our patrols - our visible patrols - not just in the Beeston area but across wider Leeds.”
