The transportation system of Stockholm Sweden is in a crisis. Drivers on the 'red' subway line are complaining of rashes on their backsides.
It seems the old cushions they sit on are spreading toxic materials through their clothing.
'We've endured everything', says Sven af Jerker, a representative for Connex who manage the system. 'Scandals in our government, corrupt cabinet ministers, conflicts in the middle east, hijacked airplanes, armed transports blown up in residential neighbourhoods, increased racial tensions - and now this.'
The union are planning to sue Connex for damages. And no one's yet thought of a temporary solution.
Such as bringing one's own cushion.
