Rail chaos affects 120,000 passengers

Britain's railway system was in complete disarray this morning with around 120,000 passengers facing a nightmare return to work because of late-running engineering works.
Two of the parts of the network were blocked forcing long-suffering travellers to use buses and other means of transport to complete their journeys.
Passengers have also been hit by steep fare rises.
The delays coincided with the latest batch of fare increases coming into force, leaving some passengers facing dramatic hikes in the cost of their season tickets.;jsessionid=44FO5EHTNNFAJQFIQMGSFFOAVCBQWIV0?xml=/news/2008/01/02/nrail402.xml
