Sir: The Virgin West Coast policy is very simple - we welcome all customers and hope that they will respect the needs and sensitivities of other travellers (letter, 19 March).

Any mother wishing to breast-feed her child is welcome to do so, but it would be helpful to check that those around her are comfortable with this.

We hope that anyone disturbed or embarrassed would move, but our senior conductors on the trains will help if necessary - and they all know this.

We look forward to Mrs Johnson's next trip and hope that she and her baby enjoy their journey with us.
