Commenting on the news that Southern Rail have the most overcrowded trains in the country, Tom Brake MP said:
"This news will be no surprise to people rail users in Carshalton & Wallington. We've been crammed into carriages like sardines for the last three years.
"It's shocking that the Government's solution is to scrap more first class carriages. If Chris Grayling travelled by train like the rest of us every morning he would know that first class carriages are already ignored.
"When some Southern trains are carrying twice the number of passengers they were designed for, you know something is seriously wrong.
"We need to end this misery by sacking Southern and getting TfL to run suburban rail services."
