Daniel Zeichner, Member of Parliament for Cambridge, has condemned Tory Ministers after a brutal 3.8% train fares hike was announced this morning.


Labour has compared the costs on over 180 train routes between when the Conservatives came to power and the projected new prices that will be implemented next March.


And this new analysis shows commuters in Cambridge will be paying an extra £1,829 for a season ticket between Cambridge and London compared to when the Tories came to power.


When the new prices are implemented Cambridge commuters will face a staggering £5,593 bill for their London season ticket, 49% more than in 2010.


And under the Tories average fares have risen twice as fast as wages.


Mr Zeichner said: “Many families in Cambridge are already struggling to make ends meet this Christmas, and rather than give them a helping hand the Tories have piled on more misery.


The worst part is that the communities who will feel the brunt of years of broken promises, empty words and no action are at the same time being squeezed by the Conservatives’ tax hikes and rising bills, as those with the broadest shoulders remain largely untouched. “
