A comedian who hit the headlines after being forced to move her mobility scooter from a disabled space on a train has had another railway nightmare – at York station.

Tanyalee Davis said she was on a train from Peterborough to York to perform at the Greater Yorkshire Fringe on Friday when a ramp, which had been pre-arranged with a guard to be made available, was not brought.

She said it forced her to stay on the train and be diverted “an hour out of my way”.

In a YouTube post Ms Davis, who has dwarfism and relies on her specially-modified mobility scooter, said:

  • We get to York. I am waiting and nobody is coming.

    People get off and they just assume that the guard will be coming and all of a sudden the train doors close and now I am off to Darlington.
