Romance

Warrington commuters now face segregation into kissing and no kissing zones. Apparently, a kiss goodbye can hold up the train and stop people getting on board.

A Virgin spokesman said: "It's just a quirky thing. It's nothing more than a light-hearted way of getting the message across."

No surprise the spokesman is a virgin then.

I reckon romantics should head up the line to Widnes where legend has it that Paul Simon wrote this.

Think you'll find its more than a legend, Pete. There's a plaque on the station, I believe.

By the way, you can't get a train from Bank Quay to Widnes, you have to get one from Warrington Central.

Pace the plaque, it was apparently written at Ditton station. I'm shocked. (But I'm pretty sure I'm correct about Bank Quay.)
