No glass for vandalised Yate Railway Station shelters

Glass in shelters at Yate Railway Station may not be replaced after being smashed three times in a week.

First Great Western said vandals struck at the station, near Bristol, on September 20, 22 and 23.

Each piece of glass in the shelters costs £500 to replace and the firm said it could not make a commitment to replace them.

A statement from the company said the incidents had been reported to the police.

Yate Railway Station links the town with Bristol to the south and Cheltenham to the north.

Station user Chris Willmore said vandalism has been an on-going problem at the station.

"A while back they took out our ticket machine for the same reason and now they are saying there is no glass.

"What exactly am I getting for the £6 a day it costs to get the train into Bristol?" she said.
