Over 1,000 rail jobs at risk, warns union

One in four railway ticket offices in England and Wales could close, with the loss of over 1,000 jobs, under recommendations in a government-commissioned report "buried" in the small print, a transport union warned.

The Transport Salaried Staffs Association said it had discovered a "hit list" of 675 stations which could be left unstaffed, across the country, including 265 in London and the South East and 114 in the North West.
