Why are UK train fares so expensive? We ask an expert
Cat Hobbs, who campaigns for public ownership of railways, on the cost of tickets and the companies pocketing the profitsLast month, it was announced that rail fares would rise in March – again. But why are UK train tickets so expensive? I asked Cat Hobbs, the founder of We Own It, a group campaigning for public ownership of the railways.I recently got married in Scotland, and it took eight hours to drive my bickering family up there. It was cheaper to do that – and pay for the therapy afterwards – than all take the train. Why do some experts say our trains are cheap?Some of our advance tickets are cheap, but our walk-on fares are expensive. A ticket from London Paddington to Bristol in 1995 was £28.50.

Benjamina Ebuehi’s recipe for marmalade roly-poly | The sweet spot
A gleefully stodgy winter pud just made for dousing in custard, but with the ever so slightly grown-up tang of marmalade instead of jamYou knew it was going to be a good day when jam roly-poly was served for pudding at school. It’s a proper comfort dish, with just the right level of stodge for a cold January day. I wouldn’t have gone near a marmalade version when I was younger, but that tangy bitterness is a taste I’m glad to have since acquired. Hot custard really is the best sidekick for this, so don’t hold back.UK readers: click to buy these ingredients from Ocado Continue reading...
