image for Man Read Newspaper Left On Train Seat
Cheeky bugger!

A man travelling on a Transpennine Express train between Hull and Manchester, found a folded newspaper on a seat, and read it, according to witnesses.

The man was seen to board the train at Hull Paragon Interchange at around 8:30am for the scheduled service to Manchester Piccadilly, leaving at 8:37am. He sat in one of the seats nearest the doors, upon which was a copy of the free 'Metro' newspaper.

Without so much as a glance to see if anyone was watching him, he picked the newspaper up, and started reading it.

One passenger sitting nearby, said:

"Cheeky bugger! That might've been somebody's free newspaper!"

The situation escalated when the man took a pen from his jacket, and started to do the Sudoku on the puzzle page. A man who observed this insolence, told me:

"That pretty much took the biscuit! And he was doodling, as well."

The tricky situation came to nothing, however, when the train eventually pulled into Piccadilly at 10:41, and the man tossed the newspaper back into the very same place he had first found it, for some other poor schmuck to read.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
