Rail fare rise of 2.8% comes into effect
An average 2.8% increase in rail fares comes into effect on Thursday, pushing the cost of some commuter travel to more than £5,000 a year.
The increase is the smallest rise in four years, according to the pan-industry Rail Delivery Group.
Campaigners say that fares are rising three times faster than incomes.
