Teresa is quoted in this week’s News Shopper responding to Transport for London’s New Year train fare increases. Passengers will now have to pay an average of 5.9 per cent more for journeys than last year.

“They say they need to put prices up to invest but let’s see some evidence of the investment.
“People are fed up with the service as it is and putting the price up is insult to injury – there are often last minute changes, lack of information and short trains.

“It’s not great, especially at a time when we are trying to attract the world to come to us as a tourist attraction.”
