Record £1.5m compensation for delayed rail passengers

Rail passengers hit by delays and cancellations on Southeastern trains at the start of this year are to receive a record £1.5m pounds in compensation.

The sum is ten times that paid out in the same period last year. It's largely due to the closure of part of the Hastings to Tonbridge line following major landslips. Services finally returned to normal in March.
