She said the 07:29 service from Brighton to London Victoria failed to arrive on time every day of 2014. A Network Rail spokesman said:

London mayor Boris Johnson met rail bosses to discuss the travel disruption at London Bridge station, on Thursday afternoon. The station is being rebuilt for the Thameslink Programme. Green Party MP Ms Lucas said:
