Rail fares on the up again next year - average 2.3% rise

Another kick in the teeth for passengers - that's how union leaders have described today's announcement that train fares will rise once again. From January the 2nd, prices will go up by an average of two point three percent.

On South West Trains, passengers will have to find an extra £120 to pay for an annual season ticket from Bournemouth to London.

While on Southern, an annual ticket for long-suffering commuters on the Brighton to London line will cost over £80 more in the New Year.

But the government also said today that thousands of Southern passengers are in line for compensation, as John Ryall explains.
