Rail fares "to rise by 4.1 per cent" amid union protest
Rail users face a 4.1 per cent rise in regulated fares next year.
The increase will pay for improvements across the network, say ministers.
Regulated fares, which the Government controls, will rise by an average of inflation plus 1 per cent. Train companies can vary those fares by up to 5 per cent above the average but they must be balanced by those that rise by less or fall.
The TUC has organised demonstrations at railway stations across the country in protest at the increases.

General secretary Frances O'Grady said: "Wage-busting fare rises are not even going on much-needed service improvements. Instead, passenger and public subsidies are lining the pockets of the shareholders of private rail companies."
