Tom Brake, Lib Dem MP for Carshalton & Wallington, said:

“The only thing reliable about Southern and Thameslink is the guaranteed disappointment with almost every journey.

“Local people spent 2017 shelling out their hard-earned cash for overcrowded, unreliable and shambolic train services -- and that’s if the trains actually turn up. The very least they deserve is a partial refund.

“To add insult to injury, commuters are today facing another big hike in their travel costs. That’s a real kick in the teeth.

"I hope the Rail Minister and the Government will listen to my calls for an immediate fares freeze.”
