ON visiting my daughter from Australia, we had occasion to travel on two trains from Euston Station to Blackpool.
The first section of the trip, from Euston Station to Preston, was exceedingly pleasant with lovely views and comfortable seats.
However, on changing trains at Preston, we found ourselves in a carriage along with a dozen drunk, uncouth, noisy louts who spent the entire trip swearing, yelling at the tops of their voices, and generally spoiling the trip for the rest of the passengers.
Coming from Australia, this sort of obnoxious behaviour would not be tolerated and I waited for the train to stop at the next station for these low lives to be put off.
Surprisingly this did not happen.
Come on Blackpool, have some self-respect for yourself and the community and stop tolerating this offensive behaviour.
MY grandaughter recently got through to the finals of the Miss Blackpool Contest.
She is quite entitled to represent Blackpool as she is Sandgrown.
My complaint is she is up against the likes of Miss Liverpool and many other towns. What have they got to do with Blackpool?
They should stick to their own towns and leave Blackpool to the Blackpool girls.

IT always amazes me why anybody would want to build homes next door to an airport – or for anyone to live in these houses.
They’ll complain about aircraft noise – what a surprise!
Instead of putting houses on the Pontin’s site, put industrial units up instead, or, turn the area into something entirely different.
Put a night club there where they won’t notice the difference – open it up to “raves”.
MR. P WEBBERLEY
IT is with trepidation I read Fylde Council is planning to reintroduce sand yachting on the beach at St Annes.
A public beach with a mixture of walkers, children, dogs, horses and picnic parties is no place for careering sand yachts.
The yachts attain speeds over 50mph with just an average breeze, they have no brakes and little steering at speed.
Your article of July 7 reminds us of the dreadful fatal accident suffered by Carol Cruz in 2002, when walking with her children she was hit by a yacht.
To ignore such things is reckless in the extreme – especially when Natural England is showing its concern for the impact the yachts will have on local wildlife. Who cares about people?
