A rail workers' union has called for a parliamentary inquiry into refunds for delayed trains after claiming that passengers were being "ripped off".

The Transport Salaried Staffs Association claimed that train operators received £172 million from Network Rail in the past year for delays, but only passed on £10 million to passengers, leaving a shortfall of more than £150 million.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
