RAIL passengers were due to have their say about new timetables which have caused huge delays at a public meeting last night.

Mark Evans, business director of train operator 'one,' was to attend the Stansted Parish Council meeting to face questions about the problems on the Stansted to London Liverpool Street line.

Commuters have set up a passenger action group after rail user Sarah Davies put up a poster at Stansted Mountfitchet station asking if any other commuters had had problems with the service.

She received more than 100 replies. Those complaining were angry about huge delays, short trains, overcrowding and cancellations.

The rail passengers were unable to address Mr Evans directly at last night's meeting so the councillors agreed to ask the questions on their behalf.
