The company has started a poll on its website and social media asking for passengers to vote on whether the zones should stay or go.

On its site SWR said it was difficult to police the areas as much as it would like, and that many train companies had already abolished the zones altogether.

As of 5.15pm yesterday, 65 per cent of voters on the company’s Twitter page had voted in favour of keeping the quiet areas.
