Gatwick Express named UK’s most delayed train service

Gatwick Express has just been awarded the unfortunate title of the most delayed train service in the UK, Travel Weekly reports.

In the past six months 8,100 services were late, 33.9% of trains were at least five minutes late, while 11% of services (2,659 trains) were either 30 minutes late or cancelled.

Unfortunately, for commuters and Gatwick travellers alike, things don’t get better on the so-called ‘slower’ services: the second-worst rail service is the London to Brighton one. Operated by Southern, this service saw 34,352 trains (32.8%) run five minutes late in the six months from January.
