Tube staff tell 17 year old scooterist to push off

Story of the day coming up folks. 17 year old scooter fanatic Max Cartoux was forced to push 7 mile home after tube staff wouldn’t let him on the train. He told the evening standard;

‘There is no motor on the scooter or anything like that — it was really hard work.’

‘My feet were hurting and the soles of my shoes were worn right through. I didn’t have a penny on me so I was stuck and had no way of getting home apart from jumping on my scooter.’

‘It was really painful and unnecessary really. I had no idea that there was a ban on taking scooters on Underground trains in rush hour. It was pretty mean-spirited of them to stop me.’

Phil Hufton of the London Underground, while in a state of ROFL has apologised for the incident.

‘On this particular occasion we could have considered this situation differently and allowed this young person to carry his scooter on to the Tube,’ Mr Hufton said.

‘We would like to offer our sincere apologies for our action on this occasion.’
