Southern rail dispute: 'Outrage' at Chris Grayling role

Chris Grayling has been "rewarded for failure" during the worst crisis on the railways for decades, a commuter group has said.

Mr Grayling has been reappointed transport secretary in Theresa May's cabinet following Thursday's general election.

The RMT and Aslef unions are embroiled in a bitter dispute with Southern rail over driver-only operated trains.

The Department for Transport has insisted that Mr Grayling has made the network a priority since day one.

Martin Abrams of the Association of British Commuters said: "We need a fresh pair of eyes."
