RMT Press Office:
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
"Southern is a company that instead of running a railway decided to declare war on its staff and passengers alike.
"We have received reports of appalling and dangerous overcrowding in the severe heat at Victoria and East Croydon last night with staff copping the full rage of angry passengers while the company bosses skulk in their air conditioned offices.
This scandal should be called to a halt immediately with Southern shown the door and Directly Operated Railways brought in to sort out the chaos they have unleashed.
