The owners of Southern Rail have been hit with a £13.4 million fine over poor performance, it has been announced.

Govia Thameslink, which owns the beleaguered rail operator, would have been forced to pay more had strikes and unprecedented levels of staff sickness not been blamed for delays, the Department for Transport told the BBC.

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

A row over the role of conductors has sparked numerous staff strikes over the past year.
