Rail fares will rise by an average of 2.8% from 2 January, the smallest rise in four years, the Rail Delivery Group has said.

The industry body said it would be spending £24bn over the next five years improving the rail network.

But some regulated tickets, including season tickets, anytime and off-peak tickets will rise on average by 3.1%.

Passenger groups said season ticket prices were going up three times faster than wages.
