Transport union RMT has criticised government cuts to services after rail and tube commuters suffered rush-hour delays again today on another hot warning.
RMT general secretary Bob Crow said: "We have warned that cuts to maintenance and under-investment on Tube and rail would lead to a spate of breakdowns in extreme weather and those warnings have been borne out with a vengeance last night and this morning."
