Sudbury rail commuters started the new year with even more strain on their wallets as fares increased by an average of 2.5 per cent.

A 12-month season ticket from Sudbury to London, including zones one to six, will now set passengers back by almost £6,000.

Sudbury resident Debo Adams, who commutes to London two to three times a week, has felt the increased costs of weekly tickets.

“The service has been unreliable again this winter,” she said. “The train fares take a large proportion of my income and there’s no sign yet of flexible season tickets.”

Labour Parliamentary candidate Jane Basham, who is campaigning to reform the railways, said: “Those returning to work after the festive break were met with a further hike in fares which have now gone up by 20 per cent since 2010.”
