Campaign for Better Transport calls for fare changes

Regulated rail fares will rise by 3.5% from January next year, following the release of July's inflation figures.

Under the formula, average fares in England and Wales are due to go up by July's RPI measure of inflation, plus 1%.

RPI - the Retail Prices Index - was 2.5% last month, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Ben Thompson spoke to Martin Abrams from Campaign for Better Transport at Leeds railway station for BBC Breakfast.
