A leading rail workers' union is to hold a day of action during next week's Budget to warn of higher fares, job losses and ticket office closures.

The Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union will launch a "highly visible" campaign at railway stations across the country, urging travellers to contact their local MPs about the future of the railways following last week's Government response to the McNulty review of the industry.
