Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has apologised for an incident which occurred yesterday on the 16.27 train from Leeds to Wigan Wallgate.
In a statement issued from his Lytham home this morning, Sir Norman said: “I was asked to produce my ticket by an inspector but couldn’t find it and was asked to buy another one. When I said Yorkshiremen are always chasing money this was meant as a compliment. Some of my best friends are Yorkshiremen".
After underlining his intention not to resign his position as chairman, Sir Norman said: "I was taking medication for a chesty cough and on reflection probably drank too much Benylin".
