  13. Are you owed money by Southern?

    Brighton station

    If you had a Southern season ticket last year, and you haven't been told you're eligible for a refund, you should contact the operator now.

    Last December the government announced a one-off compensation scheme just for Southern's passengers, to make up for the severe disruption of 2016.

    You'll get a payout if you had season tickets for at least 12 weeks, between 1 April and 31 December.

    Southern says it's already contacted passengers who qualify, but if you think you do and you haven't heard anything, you can check here .

    Quote Message: Last year was very difficult for Southern passengers and I am glad this scheme recognises this. I would urge season ticket holders to go online and claim if they believe they are eligible for compensation.' from Angie Doll Passenger Services Director, Southern

    Brighton and Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton insists tomorrow's visit of Newcastle hasn't got any easier despite results at the weekend. 

    The Seagulls' impressive win over 4th placed Reading, and draws for Newcastle and Huddersfield, means the Albion have replaced Newcastle at the top of the Championship. 

    They're six points inside the automatic promotion places with 13 games left, and ahead of the Magpies by a single point.
