UK trains are more overcrowded than ever before, says Labour
Analysis shows worst routes carry double their capacity and party says situation is ‘national disgrace’ that is set to get worse
Britain’s trains are the most overcrowded since records began, with the worst routes carrying double their passenger capacity, according to analysis by the Labour party.
Andy McDonald, the shadow transport secretary, said overcrowding on railways was a “national disgrace”, with the top 10 most packed train lines on average carrying 190% of their capacity – an increase of almost a third since 2011.
