COMMUTERS seeking peace and quiet on their daily trip to London are being disturbed by noisy keyboards, says Anita Curtis.

She said: “The train was of a normal size and on time again today. However, I would just like to mention the use of laptops in the quiet coach.

“Laptops used to be banned from the quiet coach. Even though there is no actual noise, the tap-tapping of the keyboards can become very annoying.

“There does not seem to be a blanket ban any more, although Wi-Fi is available all through the train - with the exception of the quiet coach - which really speaks for itself I feel.”
