After all trains between London and Eastbourne were cancelled last night (1 November), Polegate’s MP is pledging to again take up the issue of who has the franchise for the network.
Maria Caulfield took to Twitter to comment on her disastrous rail journey and said she will ‘beg’ for Southern to be stripped of the franchise, as passengers ‘just can’t take anymore’.
Another Awful journey home for Sussex train travellers tonight. Will beg for rail franchise to be changed as we just can't take any more— Maria Caulfield MP (@mariacaulfield) November 1, 2016
Whilst the disruption was caused by damaged rails at Wivelsfield, Ms Caulfield has said ‘enough is enough’, as ‘every journey there is some excuse’.
Southern have tweeted this morning, apologising again for delays caused to journeys because of the fault and are reminding passengers that they could be entitled to compensation.
