Update on Virgin train staff searching Millwall fans in January 2018

I’ve titled this as an update, but it’s not really! In January 2018 I was instructed by the Millwall FC Fan On The Board to write to Virgin East Coast trains to complain about the searching of Millwall FC fans at Kings Cross and Leeds when travelling to and from the Leeds FC v Millwall FC fixture.

I wrote to Virgin East Coast, and so far have not received a response, nor have I received any further communication from the Fan on The Board as to what steps the fans would like me to take.

I’m taking the unusual step of trying to reach out to the fans myself as I believe there may be some fans who wish to continue with the complaint (and I don’t want those fans to feel I have let them down) , and as Virgin East Coast railway will no longer be an operating company after 24th June 2018, it will probably not be possible to bring a claim against Virgin East Coast after this date.

Please can this message be circulated to Millwall FC fans. Any fans who were searched by Virgin train staff, who have evidence that they travelled to/from Leeds on Virgin East Coast on 20th January 2018, and who wish to bring a claim against Virgin East Coast should contact me directly on gurdena@btinternet.com or 07941 212357 by no later than 10th June 2018
