Rail fares will increase by an average of 2.2% from January 2, 2015.

Industry body the Rail Delivery Group said the rise is the lowest average rise for five years and the cash will be used to improve services.

However, for many commuters the rise will be greater than their annual pay increase and the announcement has been criticised by transport unions.

Here are examples of how costs will rise for some commuters next year:
