Fined for getting off train early…

…welcome to the lunatic asylum called BRITAIN!

Emma Clark and her fiancé Davyd Winter-Bates were travelling home to Southampton, Hants, from London when they decided to get off two stops early at Eastleigh.

But when they handed over their tickets they were made to pay £57 each for not getting off at their destination even though it was two stops early, twice the cost of a standard fare of £28.50.

South West Trains, the operator, said the couple incurred the fines because they were using discounted tickets, which do not allow passengers to break their journeys.
