The former transport secretary Lord Adonis has tweeted in response to today's news that rail fares could rise by an average of 6.2% in England, and by as much as 11% on certain tickets.
As Transport Sec I ended right of train companies to raise individual fares above the max average. Coalition reversed this - big mistake.
The rise in inflation means more misery for commuters as train companies can increase fares up by 6.2%. Will the Chancellor step in?
Today's inflation figures will give an indication of the level of rail fare increase we can expect in January. So what is driving that rise?
Commuters are braced for more misery as inflation figures were higher than expected meaning that train companies can charge more.
