Virgin West Coast train firm to stop selling Daily Mail

Virgin Trains has announced that it is going to stop selling the Daily Mail newspaper on its West Coast trains. "And Drew McMillan, head of colleague communication and engagement at Virgin, told the ASLEF union's monthly magazine:"Thousands of people choose to read the Daily Mail every day. The Daily Mail spokesman hit back, saying that at a time when fares were rising it was "Disgraceful" that Virgin was announcing that "For political reasons it is censoring the choice of newspapers it offers to passengers". "For the record, Virgin used to sell only 70 Daily Mails a day. They informed us last November that to save space, they were restricting sales to just three newspapers: the Mirror, FT and Times." Virgin West Coast runs trains between London, the Midlands, the north-west of England and Scotland.
