Rail passengers and unions have criticised plans for hefty rises in train fares next year.
Prices on many tickets will go up by an average of 6.2% in January. That's been calculated by taking the latest inflation figure, which went up today to 3.2%, and adding an extra 3%. It means a one month season ticket from Durham to Newcastle will go up by more than £6 to £112.
It's the tenth year in a row they've risen by more than inflation. Today's announcement applies to 'regulated' fares like season tickets and off peak journeys. Unregulated fares could rise by even more.
The government says the increases are necessary to pay for improvements to the railways. But they led to protests in Newcastle this morning.
