RMT Press Office:
RMT on total shutdown of services on Thameslink through central London this evening due to fleet breakdowns.
General Secretary Mick Cash said.
"How much more of this unprecedented chaos on Govia Thameslink Railways have passengers got to endure before the Government pulls the plug on this basket case franchise?
"They are a sick joke and are getting worse by the day. Chris Grayling and the Tory Government should be hanging their heads in shame and instead of propping these racketeers up they should be slinging them off the tracks and taking the services back under public control."
