Transport fares are set to rise across London from 19 January, meaning that since Boris Johnson became mayor in 2008 he has increased fares above inflation every year.

Residents travelling to work from Twickenham Station (Zone 5) and travelling to Zone 1 will see an increase of 4.25 per cent as their monthly travelcard rises from £198.91 to £207.36.

This is well above the latest inflation figure, which came in at 2.2 per cent in October.

Commuters from Teddington will similarly see a steep rise with their monthly travelcard (zones 1-6) increasing from £213.60 to £219.70.

Twickenham Labour Party is calling on the mayor to end his continual unfair price rises making travelling to work increasingly difficult for Londoners already being hit hard by the cost of living crisis.
