David Cameron unhappy with South's high rail fares

The prime minister has told BBC South Today's political editor Peter Henley that he is not happy with rail fare hikes that have seen prices go up 6.2% in southern England, compared to 3% in Northern Ireland and 4% in in Scotland.

David Cameron said the government had "inherited a system that's seen above inflation fare increases year on year".

Mr Cameron claimed he was determined to run railways more effectively and help "hard-pressed commuters in the region".
