Rail fares 'to rise by 4.1%' in England as unions protest

Commuters in England face an average 4.1% rise in regulated rail fares - including season tickets - next year.

Some campaigners say rail tickets are becoming increasingly unaffordable as price rises outstrip wages.

Patrick McLoughlin, the transport secretary, said the rises would pay for investment in the rail network, but added: "I'd like to see an end to above-inflation increases".
