A train passenger is paying the cost of travelling without a £3.90 ticket—to the tune of more than 1,000 per cent.

Magistrates in Barkingside heard that Josh Bushell of River View, Ross-on-Wye, didn’t have a ticket when he boarded a South West Trains service at London Waterloo Station on March 11.

They found the case proven against the 41-year-old, who didn’t appear in court, and ordered him to pay £417.90 in penalties.

He was fined £220, and ordered to pay £160 prosecution costs, a £34 victim surcharge and £3.90 compensation.
