Train fares in Britain will rise by an average of 3.4% in January, the rail industry announced today.

The new fares will come into effect on 2 January, industry body the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) said. 

It marks the largest fares hike for passengers in five years. Prices increased by 3.9% in 2013.

Over the past 12 months, one in nine trains have failed to meet the rail industry's punctuality target, according to Press Association. It means commuter service trains have arrived more than five minutes late at terminating stations, while long-distance journeys are over 10 minutes late.
