Tunbridge Wells commuter row over lost season ticket

A Kent commuter has said he will be left more than a thousand pounds out of pocket after Southeastern refused to reprint the season ticket he lost twice in six months.

Rahim Shivji paid £2,524 for his annual season ticket from Tunbridge Wells to Gillingham.

Since losing it, he has started paying £63.10 per week for replacement tickets and has said he will end up paying an extra £1,460 for the rest of the year.

Southeastern said a passenger was allowed one replacement ticket a year except in exceptional circumstances, such as if a ticket was stolen or destroyed in a flood or fire.
