  1. Hi all. A few days ago I was travelling on a train and caught without a ticket. it was not by a normal inspector and instead an enforcer of some kind who took matters more seriously. I had come from a small station where the ticket machine often does not work and so I said that was the reason i didn't have a ticket and was not intending to complete the journey without paying. He said that I had ample time at the station where I changed to go and buy a ticket. He also said that because the station i got on at and the one i would leave at did not have barriers that i could have intended to do the journey without paying. I apologised and said that i had planned on paying on the train, but after research its clear this isnt good enough. The whole conversation was recorded and he asked my details etc and i think he said i would be receiving a letter with an admin fee. I have done some research my question is will the letter offer an admin fee because i'm quite scared of the prospect of a court hearing and potential criminal record? Is there a way they could find out the ticket machine was in fact working (i'm not sure it was) and prosecute further or will they just want a quick penalty fee? Thanks in advance for you help.
  2. A number of years ago, I got off a train and walked to an extended platform to get a second train to my final destination, I saw I had just missed the second train so decided to walk instead, I went to a fast food place within the station to get some breakfast and then walked out of the station. As I left the station, a BTP officer approached me and asked to see my ticket, of which I did not have one. As such, he said I could either receive a caution or be summoned to court prosecuted for trying to defraud the railway services (or something like that). A couple of days later, I had to sign a simple caution for the offence of Railway Byelaw 18 Ticketless Travel at the BTP station for traveling without first buying a ticket, not buying one on the train (even though there was no conductor), and then avoiding the ticket check barrier (which I dispute as it wasn't intentional). What I'd like to know is, will this ever show up on an enhanced CRB check? Bearing in mind I have actually had 3 enhanced CRB checks since then and have always had "None Recorded" under all categories and am employed to work with children now...
