More than 100,000 London-bound rail commuters - a fifth of the overall total - have to stand at the busiest times of the morning rush-hour, according to Government figures.

Passengers on some morning and evening peak services are travelling on trains which are 60% over capacity on certain routes, the Department for Transport (DfT) figures showed.
