What's that wailing noise you can hear at train stations across the UK? It's probably the sound of commuters discovering rail fares are about to rise by 3.4 per cent.

The Rail Delivery Group announced this morning that, from 2 January 2018, all national rail fares will rise, including both regulated fares, like season tickets, and unregulated fares, including off-peak tickets.

And others immediately started looking for alternative travel arrangements
