London bus drivers and passengers need to be pushed harder to ensure they move upstairs on double decker buses to make way for disabled, elderly and parents with prams, a local leader says. Kensington & Chelsea Council transport leader Councillor Will Pascall says transport bosses should be looking at why buses aren't as full as they could be amid the controversial bus cuts being proposed by the London Mayor, targeting underused routes. He says vulnerable users are put off using buses when they see overcrowded lower decks with no space for wheelchairs or seats for them. Transport for London (TfL) says it is looking at ways of encouraging Londoners to move to the top of double decker buses to stop crowding the lower levels, even trialling automatic announcements telling passengers there are seats upstairs on some routes. Kerdesan Gallardo from North Kensington has described her struggle to find wheelchair space on buses and is worried about route cuts making it even harder for … [Read more...] about Why Londoners are being asked to take the top deck on buses
FRENCH fishermen who attacked Brit trawlers over scallops today warned the war has only just begun as the UK calls for the Royal Navy to protect our boats. Five boats were blockaded by 40 French vessels on Tuesday morning who lobbed petrol, smoke bombs and rocks in a two-and-a-half hour fishing rights battle. A skipper on one of the French boats caught up in the clash has warned Tuesday's ordeal could just be the start, with fishermen vowing to put pressure on shops to take British scallops off the shelves. Anthony Quesnel, captain of La Rose des Vents, told The Times: "If we let them do what they want, they'll ravage the area. "In the end, it's worth it because they have left.

While Stephane Le Francois told Sky News: "If ever they were to come back into our waters, then we will do the same again, but this time with larger numbers. "We are now much more motivated. "We won't use weapons, unlike what some people are saying in … [Read more...] about French trawlermen threaten more clashes with English scallop rivals… after Channel sea battle left Brits demanding Royal Navy protection
A BRIT fisherman embroiled in a violent war over scallops has called for the Royal Navy to be scrambled to France to protect our boats. Five boats were blockaded by 40 French vessels on Tuesday morning who lobbed petrol, smoke bombs and rocks in a two-and-a-half hour fishing rights battle. Now, the director of Whitelink Seafoods, whose boat Georgia Dawn managed to escape unscathed, has called for Navy intervention in the English Channel. Graeme Sutherland told The Press and Journal: "The reality is it must have been a very scary situation. “The French authorities should be controlling their own people, but if they can’t do it we should be protected by the Navy. “If they are going to be unwilling to control their own then surely our government should be protecting us.
