Rail firms are facing a claim of £93m for overcharging passengers

The first stage of a compensation claim against three rail firms has been lodged - which could lead to a payout of almost 100 million pounds.

It's claimed operators running the South Eastern and South Western networks have overcharged millions of passengers. 

The challenge has been brought by former Citizens advice and London underground worker, Justin Gutmann, who argues customers with pre paid travel cards should have been offered a fare which did not include the cost of travelling through zones.

The rail firms involved have dismissed the claim.
