Bob Crow, the head of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union, is calling on the Government to nationalise the rail network in response to the prospect of a 6.2% rise in average rail fares next year.
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.
