    That's absolutely disgusting - what's worse is there's actually toilets on the train so there's absolutely no excuse for it at all. It just shows how lazy and inconsiderate some people can be!

    I hate to say it but I'm not that shocked - used to (and still does) happen on the Paris suburban network quite often, not that that makes it ok, but it's hardly unheard of.

    Some do some don't - depends on the line and then which coach you choose.

    that's disgusting, but it sounds to me like someone's making a mountain out of a molehill ...

    (okay, that one was crap even by my standards, I'll just be off then)

    Has anyone seen the CCTV?- why have Midland trains not released it?

    No CCTV on most LM 323s.

    This happened last year on the Cross City too, someone left a brown deposit on one of the seats opposite the toilet. The toilet wasn't OOU but was presumably occupied. In that instant they didn't even have the grace to add it to the crap in the Metro, just left it on the seat... IIRC they ran the unit with the middle carriage locked out until the end of service on that occasion.

    There are many reasons why the Cross City is regarded as being s*** to work, this is just a literal one. ;) :p

    Not unknown - regrettably - some animals out there. Once found a packet on a 313 - not a nice experience cleaning that up to keep it in service..

    Happened in M&S once (not me I hasten to add). If it can happen in There, it can happen anywhere.

    "it plunged passengers into hours of misery of as the act caused hours of delays" - says the article.

    Considering there is a ten minute frequency on this route, how were passengers actually delayed for "hours" over a poo sitting on the floor?

    Well you can hardly blame the press for it, maybe the publicity will help identify the disgusting individual responsible?

    Vomit is bad enough but that is just vile!

    Did they run a DNA test on it? If not, the investigation is going to be a bit poo-poo.
