Campaigners against controversial plans to close the ticket office at Stratford railway station welcomed the government’s big U-turn on the proposals





CAMPAIGNERS against controversial plans to close the ticket office at Stratford railway station, along with many others around the country, this week welcomed the government’s big U-turn on the proposals.

On Tuesday Transport Secretary Mark Harper announced that the scheme to shut down hundreds of the offices in England had been scrapped.
