Getting a train in Cornwall has just got more expensive.

First Great Western is putting up fares.

The average ticket is now around six percent pricier. That means another seven pounds on some tickets from Penzance to Paddington.

Edward Welsh from the Association of Train Operating Companies insists the inflation-busting hike is necessary.

In the long term the question is - who pays for our railways?"
