RMT on rugby world cup rail chaos

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said.

"RMT warned from the off that the rail companies had inadequate capacity and staff in place to deal with the added pressures of the Rugby World Cup and that failure to prepare has led to utter chaos with our members jammed in the front line dealing with angry passengers. 

"With dangerous overcrowding it is scandalous that the train companies are raking in a fortune in additional fares while delivering a totally inadequate service. The reality on Britain's railways is that they struggle to cope with routine demand let alone the added pressure of a major sporting event and it is outrageous that the Government let them get away with it."
