MP: Passengers should be 'front and centre'

The Shadow Secretary of State for Transport says rail passengers should be put front and centre of any changes to ownership.

Fare increases of around 3.5 per cent were announced today and bids have been placed by companies hoping to take over the Northern and First TransPennine franchises.

Mary Creagh MP spoke to Paul Brand about the changes:

The move to more serious roles has been a smooth transition for her and she says she has studied Cilla Black in great detail to make the portrayal as accurate as possible.

Commuters react angrily to rail fare increases

The Government's has announced increases of three point five per cent - 1 per cent above the rate of inflation.

It means the annual season ticket from Hull to Leeds will rise by £140. The route from Grantham to York will rise by £87.

Rail users told ITV Calendar the changes could limit people's use of trains, but rail minister Claire Perry MP says passengers need to contribute to investment in the network:
