Funny, because the Daily Mail reported she'd actually lost the appeal

The ultimate irony here is that, in a report on the BBC website, there is the following quote:


Quote:Go North West said: "The design of the mirrors on our buses was agreed after consultation with Unite some time ago. All our other drivers of similar height to Tracey are able to view them safely.

"When Tracey raised a concern with us, we made numerous proposals to accommodate her, including offering to put her on different routes, and different types of buses."

The Mail were referring to the first appeal presumably (going off the date of publication and reference to the upcoming second appeal).

Newspaper adverts cause a bit of controversy on Merseyside. 
I've noticed they've been added to the fleet of at least one NE based operator too.

It's just the corporate liveried examples coming off, the 'Cross City' liveried examples are staying and have been converted to Euro 6.
Go North West does feel quite exotic with its inheritances from elsewhere within Go-Ahead. I refer to Citaros from Go North East, Eclipses from Plymouth and EvoSetis from London.

Interesting developments. Rotala and Stagecoach arguments dismissed.
