Exclusive Buzz Video

A disabled woman was unable to get from Hampden Park to Eastbourne on the train, as there were no staff members around to help her.

Travelling to Eastbourne with a friend, she was left on the platform, as they were unable to get the wheelchair on to the train without the use of a ramp.

Another woman, this time at Pevensey, would have been left in the same position at the weekend, had a train driver not broken with protocol to help her late at night.

Both Southern trains were running under the new driver-only operations.

Eastbourne Buzz has been hearing from a friend of one of the women involved and the RMT, who have been campaigning against the introduction of DOO:
