Hi, just looking for some clarification here. Situation is as follows. Young person boarded FTPE train to Liverpool Lime street at Newcastle Central Station to travel to Durham. Didn't allow enough time to purchase a ticket at the station. Intended to buy a ticket from the conductor on the train as they've been able to do many times before. Never been issued with an Unpaid fair Notice before and travels very frequently on trains all over the country, mostly purchasing tickets in advance for long journeys. Was stopped by a Revenue Protection officer and offered to pay. Was verbally cautioned when couldn't produce a ticket. Was very frightened, thought was going to be arrested (never had any contact with police before, was in tears when they called me) and stated that they'd got on the train at Manors station where there's no ticket machine. Officer told him he was lying as the train hadn't come that way, or something to that effect. Wasn't asked to verify what the Officer had written down or sign it (which is what the FTPE revenue protection policy states) and wasn't given any documentation. The officer flashed his badge in front of his face at some point. He told the person that they could remain on the train past Chester-le Street and have an interview. Person asked what the benefit of that would be and was told "none really" by the Officer. Told they will get a letter in the post. According to the FTPE policy if the Officer cautioned him then he is accredited under PACE- the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. I assume therefore that there are strict procedures that they should follow once they caution someone. Surely the person should be allowed to read the "evidence" and sign as a true statement of the facts? Additonally, I would have thought that person should've been given something with the name of the Officer and a reference number? Just told by the Officer that they would get a letter in the post. Have called the FTPE customer relations and they were pretty useless as they don't deal directly with revenue protection and I knew more about their policy than she did. Just looking for advice regarding the points of law and the PACE act and the appearance that the Officer seemed not to follow the procedures and also about what happens next. Thanks for any clarification and/or advice.
