Shambolic episode

So Tyne & Wear Metro Service Operator, DB Regio, has accepted responsibility for failings which brought pandemonium on the day of the Great North Run.

After such a debacle I am amazed DB Regio retains the contract but just think of the disgrace, and the headlines, if the shambolic episode had occurred shortly after the grand opening of the would-be (to be built), much anticipated Great Transport Interchange in South Shields.
