Commuters React as Train Fares set to rise AGAIN.

Rail fares are set to rise by 2.3% in the new year, rail bosses have announced.

The rise, which is above the 0.9% rate of inflation, continues the trend of increasing rail prices, with prices rising sharply year-on-year since 2004.

Commuters are extremely unhappy at the rise in fares after months of disruption, which has included several strikes on Southern Rail and the closure of the Severn Tunnel for six weeks on the Great Western Mainline, which links London with South Wales.

City Beat reporters Nicolò Gervasi and Tommaso Ciani hit Farringdon Station in London to find out the thoughts of commuters.
