Southern rail crisis: £20m fund announced to tackle problems
Government measures include new board to address issues on rail network following months of disruption
The government has unveiled a £20m fund and a new review board to improve Southern rail services and restore confidence in the franchise following a summer of misery for passengers.
The transport secretary, Chris Grayling, announced the measures on Thursday after months of disruption to Southern services because of a dispute over the role of guards, and staff shortages.
