From the Guardian:
"Inflation-busting rises in bus and tube fares will be announced today by the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, in a move he will blame on the 'reckless' spending policies of his predecessor. The cost of travelling on London transport for adults will rise by more than inflation next year as a fares freeze imposed by Ken Livingstone is scrapped."
And from the FT:
"Boris Johnson, London’s mayor, will announce on Thursday significant, above-inflation rises in most bus, Underground and some national rail fares, blaming decisions taken by his predecessor. The price increases will take effect from January and follow Ken Livingstone’s decision earlier this year, when mayor, to freeze most public transport fares and cut some bus fares."
You read it here first. And now, I feel a row coming on...
