Higher UK rail fares would add insult to injury, say mayors
Andy Burnham and Steve Rotherham write to minister demanding freeze in fares
The mayors of Greater Manchester and the Liverpool city region have demanded a freeze in rail fares after months of travel chaos across the country.
In a joint letter to the transport secretary, Chris Grayling, the mayors Andy Burnham and Steve Rotherham said the anticipated 3.5% rise in fares would “add insult to injury” for beleaguered passengers.
