Get the txt messaging sorted

The ARC service that sends you txt messages when the train is late or cancelled reached a new abusdity tonight.
At the Brit, scores of people were waiting anxiously for the 5.15pm Western line train.

At 5.09 many of our mobiles beeped with a message that said because of a mechanical fault trains in both directions were 20 minutes late.

Ay 5.10 the announcer at the Brit said the train would leave at 5.15.

None of us knew whether to believe him or the txt message and so go for a walk.

The train arrived at the platform at 5.15pm and left a minute later.

This txt messaging service is proving more of a pain than a help.

Can't someone get it right?
