Compliments to Ms Riley for highlighting the terrible behaviour of Virgin Trains.

Countdown’s Rachel Riley is a bit of a mathematical genius. Did you know though, she’s also a rather skilled corporate giant slayer? Because on Sunday 25 February, she publicly exposed Virgin Trains’ treatment of a disabled passenger.

Riley was aboard a packed, football ‘match day’ Virgin service. After initially complaining on Twitter about the “disgusting” and “horrible” conditions on her train, she rounded on Richard Branson’s train company over the treatment of a disabled passenger:
