A single mother has told ITV Meridian how the problems on Southern Rail have forced her to quit her job as a lawyer.

Emma Green, from Sussex, was working for a top firm in London. But delays and cancellations were playing havoc with her family life - and she struggled to get home for her son.

Well, tonight, we can reveal that one Southern service - from Littlehampton and Hove to Victoria - was late eight out of ten times - in the last year - arriving on time on just 42 days.

Today, emergency talks have been taking place to try to end the misery for commuters like Emma.

Malcolm Shaw has the latest.

Malcolm spoke to Emma and Rail Minister Paul Maynard.
