The ban on c2c follows the introduction of similar bans on other UK train lines, and is in response to safety concerns regarding improperly maintained batteries and fire risks.

This measure ensures an enhanced travel experience, enabling our passengers to enjoy their journey comfortably and without any disruption.”

“This ban will bring numerous benefits to c2c’s customers; by removing these potentially hazardous objects from trains and stations, passengers can feel reassured about their safety and avoid any inconvenience caused by their usage. This initiative will also contribute to a more harmonious atmosphere on all journeys.” he added.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Pleased to see that C2C have taken this action after viewing some of the horrific accidents these vehicles fitted with faulty batteries have caused.
