Merseyrail fares to be frozen for six months, mayor says


Regulated train fares in England are set to rise by up to 4.9% from March.

Mr Rotheram said he wanted to "shield" commuters from the hikes and "encourage more people to the Merseyrail network".

"We are trying to do everything in our power to make life easier for the travelling public," he said.
"People are being hit hard by the cost of living increase. We want to play our part."
