The Passenger Focus rail watchdog has warned travellers to prepare for 'staggeringly large' fare increases in the New Year.

Ticket prices are going up by an average of 5.8 per cent from Sunday, but some fares will increase by almost 13 per cent.

In London, tube and bus passengers face a 6.8 per cent rise.
