Southern rail tops list of most overcrowded trains
Some services carried twice as many people as trains were designed for, Department for Transport figures show
Southern rail services carrying more than twice as many passengers as they were designed for were the most overcrowded in the country last year, government statistics reveal.
Five of the top 10 most jam-packed trains from spring 2016 and two from autumn were operated by Southern, with Department for Transport monitors recording 242 passengers squeezed on to two cars on the 5.40am service from Uckfield to London Bridge.
