Disabled Woman Shames Train Passengers Who Refused To Give Up The Seat She Reserved

A disabled woman has brought public shame to the two men who refused to give up their seat on a train travelling from London's Kings Cross to Skipton.

Cat Lee from West Yorkshire thought she would avoid the embarrassment of asking people to move from their unreserved seats and instead, plan ahead only to find her seat was occupied.

The 43-year-old told the two men who were sitting comfortably, about her disability by the pair allegedly refused to move and ignored her.


Lee suffered nerve damage and crippling groin pain following an operation, which left her unable to work, reports the Metro.


Defiant, Lee took a photo of the stubborn men and posted it to Facebook along with the caption: "Meet these gentleman. Travelling from London Kings Cross on the 18:03 to Skipton.

"Charming fellows took reserved seats from Rach & I. As a disabled passenger, I stated why I needed my reserve seat. They didn't budge. I'm sure their wives and mothers would be proud of them."

A spokesperson for Virgin Trains said: "Should a passenger find their seat unavailable then the Train Guard should be made aware and they would do everything they could to remove anyone or anything currently in the reserved seat.'However, ultimately they can't force someone out so they would then, if unsuccessful, find an alternative seat for the passenger either in standard or in first."

Berks. The fucking pair of them.
