National Express jobsworth makes pensioners leave food

I hope National Express are very happy that the driver of their coach from Newquay to Victoria, which departed at 3 p.m. on Sunday October 5th, forced three lady pensioners to leave seven Cornish pasties behind at the coach station in Newquay because of a rule about not allowing hot food on the coach. One lady lost £12 worth and with another two as well, about £15 worth of good food was wasted - or did somebody else get it?

Rules is rules as they say. I'd rather sit on a coach without someone tucking into hot food, with the associated smell being somewhat off-putting, too. Haven't these people heard of packing up using tuppaware?
