Travel delay claims were misleading

I would question Colin Spencer’s complaint that it took him FOUR hours to travel the 10 miles back from Huddersfield Town Hall to his home at Cleckheaton (Guardian Letterbox November 1).

It took him THREE hours, not four because just missing his train at Huddersfield (due to his rehearsal running late) is not the fault of the transport companies.

Including that first hour’s wait is rather misleading and deceptive because it was his own actions that caused him to just miss the first connection.

The start of his return travel journey is when he boards the train (assuming it is not late ) – not when he starts to wait 58 minutes for the next one.
