PA

Railway workers have staged a protest outside the London home of Transport Secretary Philip Hammond against rail fare rises and job losses.

Members of the Transport Salaried Staffs Association pushed leaflets through the doors of Mr Hammond's neighbours in Pimlico, central London, and held up placards reading: "I'm Alright Jag."

The union's deputy leader, Manuel Cortes, led the protest and challenged the minister over ticket-office closures and plans to raise fares in the new year.

The leaflets explained why the union believes the Transport Secretary's policies are bad for public transport.
