New station gets an eight out of 10
Only 8 out of 10 for the new look of the Leicester railway station forecourt and frontage, I'm afraid.
Why not full marks? The designers missed out on the inclusion of a tourist and visitor information centre, such as the one at York railway station!
Is it too late to seek this simple addition or, as I fear, will the city and county be, once again, left behind in the tourist information stakes race?

In reply to Alan Pendragon's latest (Mailbox, September 1), I admit that I could have made my position clearer.
I believe in the incarnation and the resurrection, but as the gospel accounts vary as much as evidence in court (not only the defendant's) often does, I keep an open mind on some of the details they give.
Unlike Mr Pendragon, I am content with not knowing everything.
There will always be grey areas, even about events within living memory. Certainty is just a dream.
Veronica M Brown, Wigston.
I wish to reply to the letter by R Dunkley ("Don't trust the E111 abroad", Mailbox September 14).
I note with interest the frustration of R Dunkley trying to get an E111 for medical cover abroad.
May I suggest he or she purchases an adequate holiday insurance policy instead before travelling abroad? Any good travel agency will sell one.
The E111 is intended to provide free medical cover in European Union countries for emergencies only but does not cover all eventualities.
Not all doctors will accept the E111 as they do not make so much money that way and some hospitals will put you to the back of the queue for treatment.
Having worked in the travel business for 40 years, I have always recommended travel insurance for protection and peace of mind.
Get an E111, by all means, but only use a back-up. I hope this acts as a guide to all readers.
David Frost, Blaby.
