Are trains in Britain as overcrowded as Jeremy Corbyn claims?
Virgin Trains’ dispute with the Labour leader has turned fares, strikes and overcrowding into political issues
Jeremy Corbyn’s attempt to highlight overcrowding on the rail network by sitting down on a Virgin service from London to Newcastle has erupted into a political storm. The incident has raised a number of questions, including whether overcrowding is a genuine problem on Virgin services and whether the Labour leader’s policy of nationalising train operators will make services less crowded and bring down fares.
