Commenting on the RSSB annual report today General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"These are truly shocking figures that are a wake up call for the politicians and train companies pressing ahead with cash-led plans to axe staff from trains and stations.

"RMT has warned repeatedly that sacking guards and destaffing the platforms would turn our railways into a criminals' paradise and here is the concrete evidence that shows the consequences of crashing on regardless. 

"RMT will use this latest evidence as we continue to campaign and fight to retain safety critical staff on our transport services. "
