I WOULD like to reply to the letter (May 16) from Ronnie Park, managing director of First Bus.
I travel daily between 8.30am and 5.30pm on First services from Scotstoun to Glasgow city centre.
Since McColl's buses have been taken off this route any 204/205 bus I use has been like a cattle truck. When I phoned First to complain no person from the company bothered to call me back.
All the First buses on this route are the same – I have counted at least 30 people standing on some buses.
The vehicles are just as crowded at 4pm, if I am lucky to finish early.
Inspectors on these routes do not seem to mind there are so many standing.
This is an accident waiting to happen.

I WOULD like to thank the two young people who came to help me, a pensioner, when I had a serious fall in Mitchell Lane. I was too shocked to ask their names.
I spent several hours in the Royal Infirmary and had to have numerous stitches. I'm improving slowly.
Thank you again.

I WAS saddened by the death of sculptor George Wyllie. He was one of the most inventive and original artists Glasgow has produced, although it was only when he reached his late fifties that he finally got the recognition he deserved.
I will never forget the straw train he hung over the River Clyde during the 1988 Glasgow Garden Festival.
Wyllie will be fondly remembered for his unique art forms.

I AM afraid the Scottish Government's intention of making alcohol more expensive will not work.
People's habits are extremely difficult to change. The main sufferers will be moderate drinkers who can handle their consumption.
