RWC 2015: Disabled station access at Twickenham not up to scratch

first_imgHe can’t judge the clubs now but he can say with authority that ‘reactive’ behaviour to the disabled is the norm in everyday life. People are nice as pie, the on-the-ground railway staff at Brighton and Victoria are brilliant, but the problems keep recurring and Higgy, and many others like him, are having their lives blighted. “It’s a downer,” he says. “It’s something we have to deal with, but it should be better.”Quite so. It should be better. In the meantime, we should be thanking Higgy and the other 800,000 UK wheelchair users for their forbearance. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Twickenham-bound: Alastair Hignell (centre) back in 2009. Disabled fans may struggle to reach HQ Take Higgy’s trip to this aforesaid lunch meeting. First, he had to ring up to alert railway staff of his intended journey – that can take ten or 15 minutes even after getting past the recorded messages.Still, it meant that someone was going to meet him off the train with a ramp at Clapham Junction. Except that no one did and, worse, the train started pulling away with him stuck on it, and a fellow passenger had to shout and bang on the window to stop the train.Ah well, at least he would be okay at Richmond, because after ringing up he knew a taxi would be waiting to whisk him to Twickenham. The railway company is obliged to pay for this if no disabled access is provided at the destination station.Station overload: Platforms will be rammed with fans during RWC 2015But no, foiled again! “The staff were surprised to see me and when they phoned for a taxi it was going to be an hour and a half’s waiting time. So I caught a black cab and paid myself.”Once he was home, he set about trying to get a refund for his taxi. And to that can be added this week’s journey, because this time the platform lift at Clapham wasn’t working, so they said he’d have to carry on to London. “But I was in danger of missing my appointment (a speaking engagement at a school) so I ended up getting a train to Woking and catching a taxi to Farnham. I do about three school talks every fortnight and the nearer you are to London, the worse it is.”You might laugh if it wasn’t so shameful.It’s about ten years since Higgy conducted a disability audit of English Premiership grounds and concluded that “there wasn’t a single club that tried to solve problems before they arose. Not one of them was proactive. Not one of them felt the need to make changes unless they were asked to. All of them were reactive, waiting for a complaint or a request to be made before deciding to take action”.center_img There was a lunch meeting last week about the Varsity Match, held in a hospitality box at Twickenham stadium. At its conclusion, the affable convener Rob Cole, a director at Westgate Sports Agency, offered to help former England international and Bristol full-back Alastair Hignell as he set out on his homeward train journey to Brighton. Higgy, as he’s affectionately known within rugby circles, has MS and uses an electric scooter.A few of us waited for Rob to return so we could say our formal goodbyes. Five minutes became 10 minutes, and then 20. Another 20 minutes passed and still no sign of Rob, we mused over where could he be?Rob finally returned and we had our answer. He’d walked to Richmond station with Higgy because there was no disabled access at Twickenham station.Consider that for a moment. A wheelchair user going to watch England play rugby cannot alight at the proper train station. In this day and age, that’s a disgrace.And relax: Hignell back at home in more peaceful surroundingsMore than 6,000 people a day pass through Twickenham station, which will be full to bursting next September when the 2015 World Cup kicks off. Will the station be modernised in time for that England-Fiji tournament opener?Yes and no. An ambitious project, involving residential and retail building, has been put on hold because of local opposition. It could take years to resolve.So Network Rail has opted for an immediate £5m package of improvements that include – hooray – step-free access between the ticket office and platforms. And, for that matter, a bigger area to help cope with the crush of fans being shepherded on to trains after a Test match (cue the sheep noises).“A proper access-for-all scheme, like they’re doing at the nearby Whitton station (not in time for the World Cup), involves huge lifts that cost millions each,” a Network Rail spokesman told me. “The work at Twickenham won’t be like that but there will be a stair lift for disabled passengers. And it will be completed by the World Cup.”I passed on this good news to Higgy. “A stair lift will be no good for powered wheelchairs,” he replied.So he will be obliged to go through the usual travel aggro, and when you realise that the hassle starts before he even embarks on a journey, and continues long after he’s back home, you get an idea of how demoralisingly tedious life can be for a disabled person. With the Rugby World Cup now less than a year away, Alastair Hignell finds Twickenham Station’s disabled access leaves a lot to be desiredlast_img read more

Rescuers use dish soap to free trapped rock climber

first_imgJustin Sullivan/Getty Images(ISANTI, Minn.) — The next time you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place, look to your kitchen sink. It might just hold the key to your freedom.When a 13-year-old rock climber’s knee became wedged in a crack between two rocks in a Minnesota park on Wednesday evening, rescuers found themselves stumped.They tried hammers. They tried chisels. They tried battery-powered extrication tools.The girl’s leg, however, stayed stubbornly stuck.Rescue crews, hanging off ropes suspended in the air, refused to give up. They decided to take an unusual approach: lubricating her leg with Dawn liquid dish soap.It worked. The climber, hanging 45 feet off the ground, was safely brought down.In a Facebook post on Thursday, the Isanti Fire Department said more than 40 rescuers were involved in the effort, including teams from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the Pine County Sheriffs Office, Essentia Health, and Fire and Rescue teams.The rescue took about three hours and the Pine County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook that the teen was lowered to waiting EMS and first responders and transported to a local hospital.“The injuries are believed to be soft tissue type injuries and she is expected to fully recover,” the sheriff’s office said in the post.“We would also like to remind people to use our outdoor resources safely and to always be in groups or let people know where you will be. Even with the best training unexpected things can and do happen,” it added.ABC News has reached out to the rescue organizations for comment.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Constraining past accumulation in the central Pine Island Glacier basin, West Antarctica, using radio-echo sounding

first_imgThe potential for future dynamical instability of Pine Island Glacier, West Antarctica, hasbeen addressed in a number of studies, but information on its past remains limited. In this study we useairborne radio-echo sounding (RES) data acquired over Pine Island Glacier to investigate past variationsin accumulation pattern. In the dataset a distinctive pattern of layers was identified in the central part ofthe glacier basin.We use these layers as chronological identifiers in order to construct elevation maps ofthe internal stratigraphy. The observed internal layer stratigraphy is then compared to calculatedstratigraphy from a three-dimensional ice-flow model that has been forced with different accumulationscenarios. The model results indicate that the accumulation pattern is likely to have changed at leasttwice since the deposition of the deepest identified layer. Additional RES data linked to the Byrd ice coreprovide an approximate timescale. This timescale suggests that the layers were deposited at thebeginning of or during the Holocene period. Thus the widespread changes occurring in the coastalextent of theWest Antarctic ice sheet at the end of the last glacial period could have been accompaniedby changes in accumulation pattern.last_img read more
