    A report into the troubled Southern rail franchise should be published immediately by the government, the RMT union has demanded.

    It was commissioned last September and written by Chris Gibb, a non-executive director at Network Rail.

    The union claims the Department for Transport (DfT) has kept it "under wraps since the back end of last year".
