The owners of Southern rail have been fined £13.4m for poor performance, the Department for Transport has announced.

The government said the fine would have been higher, but most of the delays had not been Southern’s fault, with strikes and unprecedented levels of sick leave being blamed.

Southern says it has never made a profit on the service.

The Association of British Commuters (ABC) took legal action over what it described as the Southern “fiasco”.
